Selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List
Trophy for Best NZ Red Wine – International Wine Challenge (IWC), London 2021

In addition to some huge scores from local wine critics the 2019 Valli Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Noir has been judged one of the '10 Best Wines in the World' at arguably the world's most important wine competition, The 2021 International Wine Challenge, or IWC in London. Judged out of 1,000s of entries from around the world it was only nudged from the very top spot by a French Burgundy, Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Cuvée Cyrot Chaudron Hospices de Beaune, 2019 which sells for around $700.00 a bottle! Wow!

They described the wine as "What a delight to taste a Gibbston Pinot in full flow. These are the most delicate Pinots in Central Otago and this beauty has an almost waxy smoothness and a bright springtime white flower scent to go with redcurrant and strawberry fruit streaked with apple acid and dusted with salted almond."

This is the 3rd time the Valli Gibbston Pinot Noir has received a Top International award with the first being the IWSC Pinot Noir Trophy for the 2010 vintage and the second the IWSC Pinot Noir Trophy for the 2013 vintage.

Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Glimmering garnet hue with captivating aromas of fresh herbs (wormwood, rosemary, and wild thyme) that “leap” out of the glass and are complemented by fig, cherry and dried rose petals. The palate commences savoury with delicious dried herb, dukkah, and mushroom flowing into bright red fruit, with a long and spicy finish. The wine has a silky texture with fine tannins and exquisite detail. This vintage has delivered a “classic” Gibbston Pinot Noir that is understated, graceful and complex with so much intrigue creating an aura of suspense. A delight to the senses at release, this wine will continue to captivate for 15 or so years."

5 Stars & 98/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Elegant and refined, yet concentrated and persistent, the wine shows sweet cherry, dried herb, clove and subtle game characters on the nose, leading to a finely flowing palate that’s ripe and spicy. Seamlessly structured by polished tannins, finishing supremely long and engaging. At its best: 2023 to 2031."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"The stylish 2019 vintage was hand-picked, matured in French oak barriques (30 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright ruby, it is mouthfilling and supple, with vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, a hint of herbs, fresh acidity, nutty, savoury notes adding complexity and an inviting fragrance. A very graceful, youthful red, it's well worth cellaring to 2022+."

94/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2019 Vintage)
"Light, supple pinot noir with cherry, fresh herbs, spice and integrated nutty oak flavours. A fine-grained, smooth-textured wine with typical Gibbston vibrant, tangy, high-energy cool-climate characters Drink 2021 to 2028."

95/100 James Suckling (2019 Vintage)
"Such attractive, fragrant complexity here with bright strawberries, red cherries and spice, as well as a leafy edge and wild herbs. Some pepper, too. The palate has striking elegance with piercing acidity and flavours of yellow clingstone peach, nectarine and red plum. Smooth-honed, long and plush tannins."

94/100 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (2019 Vintage)
"The medium to full-bodied 2019 Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Noir (from the winery’s home vineyard) is again a top performer. Complex aromas of pencil shavings, wild herbs, root vegetables and Bing cherries all make appearances, while the tannins are exquisitely balanced and supple, the fruit concentrated and ripe, and the finish long and mouthwatering. Expect this beauty to drink well for a decade, perhaps even longer."

19.5/20 (98) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, May 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Moderate, even ruby-red, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly full, nuances of red cherries, strawberries entwined with sweet basil, thyme, followed by rose petals, and game with a savoury edge. Medium-bodied, aromas of red cherries, strawberries with a touch of sour cherries, followed by herbaceous thyme, sweet basil and red liquorice. Floral presence found its way amongst game and earthy savouriness. Cinnamon, nutmeg dusting and fruit linger to a long, sleek finish. Dusty tannin has a chewy texture, provide some grip to a lively acid line. This is an elegant and fragrant Pinot Noir with red fruit, delicate complexity and a savoury edge. Match with roasted duck and braised pork belly over the next 12+ years. Fruit sourced from Gibbston, fermented with 25% whole bunch to 13% alc, aged in French oak for 11 months, 30% new oak."

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
