This is a pinot noir of exceptional quality from the excellent 2016 vintage.  The Valerie series is made from handpicked, small parcels of supreme quality wine and named in honour of Valerie Friend for her vital contribution to Narkoojee.  The wine was matured in a proportion of new French oak barriques and has intense flavour, excellent balance, great length and complexity.

    “A delicious pinot with grace and a fluid line to all the senses. Here the fruit flavours are in the red spectrum, spices already starting to develop and pointing to the future. The tannin and oak support is finer, and thus balanced.”
