We are excited to introduce to you this very unique wine, which is a modern take on an ancient process - and the unique orange hue of a skins ferment Pinot Gris wine. 

Tasting Notes: 

The nose is saline and supremely graceful. You can smell hints of stone fruit and bruised apple on the nose with nuts, ginger and spices. A complex, elegant wine whose perfume, depth, minerality and richness are the perfect match of the Valli philosophy. On the palate, the wine deliver a bouquet of dried apricot, honey and savoury herbs. Refreshing acidity accompanied by fine grained tannins on the finish. The perfect match with food. A white wine made as a red wine.

Technical information: The Pinot Gris grapes came from a small vineyard on Grant’s Road near the Otiake River, a tributary of the Waitaki River in the Waitaki Valley, North Otago. The soils have the influence of glacial wash, and limestone and are a bit heavier than the gravelly soils found in the vineyards nearer to the village of Kurow. The harvest was small in volume with just under 1t/ha and tiny bunches weighing 50g on average. The grapes were hand-harvested on the 9th of May and were 100% destemmed into a 2000 litre open top fermenter. The ferment had minimal cap management with one daily punch-down during fermentation and a gentle cap wet the rest of the time on skins which was a total of 19 days. The wine was pressed in a small basket press with no press cuts and aged in old pinot barrels for 10 months. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration; as such, some natural sediment may occur.

Winemakers: Jen Parr & Grant Taylor
