Valli’s Gibbston vineyard was the first vineyard in the valley to be planted in true north to south direction, maximizing the amount of sunlight hours the vines receive. This contributes dramatically to the uniform ripening of fruit, a critical factor in Pinot Noir quality. This vineyard soils are windblown alluvial loess, mainly schist derived. The topsoil is between .5 and 1m deep over free draining gravels. These fairly fine gravels allow the roots to easily access water and nutrients. Gibbston is one of the coolest sub regions of Otago and consequently has one of the slowest ripening seasons. One of the key factors in quality Pinot Noir from such a cool area is long hang time i.e. the amount of time the grapes are on the vine; this allows them to develop elegance and complexity of flavour. Often the Pinot Noir is not picked until early May. – Description from Dragac
