Valli by Burn

Burn Cottage Valli Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016, Central Otago, NZD $65

The result of a grape swap for Gibbston grapes grown by Valli but made by Burn Cottage. It’s an intermingling of two strong brands. A pleasing core of sweet, ripe plum and berry flavours with a seasoning of spices. A weighty wine with potential. (Cork)
