Valli Bannockburn Vineyard Pinot Noir 2022 750ml

95 Points - CamDouglas 2020

Ripe varietal red berry fruit scents with dark cherry and raspberry, contrasting fine savoury qualities showcasing wild thyme and rugged countryside schist qualities. Complex and youthful with sweet baking spice scents from barrel and silky smoky quality. Delicious on the palate with texture touching the senses first - an abundance of polished tannins and back bone of acidity echoing the wild and rocky countryside and thyme qualities. The core fruit flavours mirror the bouquet. Faboulous texture and length. Best drinking from 2023 through 2033+.

Bannockburn sits at the heart of one of the wine world's most promising Pinot locations outside Burgundy, and this dark, fragrant yet intensely fruited wine drew our judges' attention not just for the panache of its fruit but also for its intensity, drive, structure and resonance. The blackberry and plum fruits you can find on the nose are almost brooding, and a far cry from the sometimes simple appeal of the region's pioneer Pinots. On the palate it is mouth-filling and deep with high-resolution focus; the acidity is neither trivial nor shrill; the tannins are soft, but carry a useful flavour print. It's after you swallow, though, that you come to appreciate its sinew and ligament, its inner seriousness and its sheer completeness. Very fine Pinot by any measure.
