Very dark ruby. Ripe dark red berry fruit entwined with black cherry, plum and spicy oak. Layers of liquorice, spices, soy sauce and herbs emerge from the core with aeration, the palate features rich, plush, ripe fruit flavours of dark red berries, black cherries and plums entwined with herbs, spices liquorice and pepper.

Palliser Estate Riesling
Martinborough
Available by the dozen
Palliser Estate's vineyards were first planted in 1984 and the wines now produced are starting to show characters from these older vines. Riesling planted over a relatively small area, gains complexity from differences in slight variations of soil types and microclimates. Palliser have consistently outgunned rivals in all but the most uncooperative vintages, producing a North Island Riesling like a Riquewehr, but more generous and refined. Fermented cool to retain varietal bouquets and rested on sediments for palate texture, it's sensationally rich with balanced acidity and just a little residual sugar.

Palliser's vineyards in Martinborough are trained to achieve low canopy densities whilst exposing the fruit to maximum amounts of sun. Combined with judicious leaf plucking, this produces the distinctive fruit flavours in the wine. Reliable dry autumns increase the intense flavours, and low cropping levels are the result of cool windy spring weather. When the grapes are judged to be at their optimum maturity, they are harvested and vinified to retain the inherent fruity qualities of the finest Sauvignon Blanc. A backbone of estate grown fruit is vinified, partially to native yeasts, in chilled fermenters alongside parcels from good local growers, followed by four months on sedimentery lees to build complexity.
 
Brilliant pale straw with light green hues. The bouquet is full, open and voluminous with fresh and powerful passionfruit aromas along with gooseberries, lime fruit and flinty minerals that blossom. Dry to taste, the palate has layers of rich, pungent passionfruit and grapefruit flavours with ripe capsicums and fresh herbs that fill the mouth. A fine textural thread provides line and length, leading to a soft, richly nuanced finish.

Pencarrow is the second label from Palliser Estate, gaining recognition for their impressive quality of fruit, distinctive expression of Martinborough and affable approachability. Pencarrow is crafted to traditional Burgundian techniques, harvests of several clone Pinot Noir, including 114 and 115, 667 and 777, Abel and 10/5, a portion as whole bunches, are treated to a cold soak before a wild indigenous yeast vinification for a fortnight on skins. A post ferment maceration for optimal extraction encourages the complex tannin structure and infuses further complexity. The finished wine is pressed into a selection of French oak barrels for a year's maturation.
 
Dark, deep, black hues. Tightly wound, intense and penetrating nose of ripe black fruits with dark herb and spice notes as well as violet florals. Medium full bodied, the flavours unfold and reveal black fruits and floral, concentrated and densely packed, supported by fine grained yet firm tannins. The oaking is sensitive and the youthful acidity carries the flavours to a long, lingering finish featuring spicy black fruits with hints of liquorice.

Palliser Estate enjoys a microclimate and terrain like no other. Harvests of Sauvignon Blanc grown to warmer Martinborough terroirs are generally more fruit forward, round and silkier than the racier South Island siblings. The unique maritime climes deliver harvests of exceptional quality fruit, low cropping levels translate into the essential ingredients of power and concentration, Martinborough is one of the few areas where this is naturally imposed by the weather. A backbone of estate grown Sauvignon Blanc is vinified in chilled fermenters alongside parcels from good local growers, followed by several months on sedimentery lees to build complexity.
 
Pale straw colour with youthful green hues. Full nose with voluminous aromas of pungent passionfruits, gooseberry and lime, lifted with some fermentation esters. Dry to taste, flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruits and English gooseberries, a little restrained and tight in expression. Bright and fresh, leading to a dry, minerally finish. This delicious and succulent wine is great drinking alongside Mediterranean and Middle Eastern faire.
In 1984 when Palliser planted its first vines, they had little inkling of where the future would take them

The original facilities were constructed in time for the 1991 vintage. As the company and vineyards grew it became neccessary to expand. A new purpose built barrel hall was constructed in 1999. This was built from thermomass concrete and is temperature controlled to minimise losses due to evaporation. The winery's works were re-developed in time for the vintage of 2002, and Palliser can now process 600 tonnes of fruit.

Palliser Estate

Palliser's founders knew they wanted to make good wine, but where does it all start? Palliser Estate's environment allows them to grow outstanding grapes to create magical wines. Palliser take pride in the care of their vineyard soils by encouraging diversity of plant life. The winemakers minimise spraying and use only friendly sprays where possible. Caring for the environment started as a notion, now it is an ethos.

The quality of the Palliser grapes are acknowledged as among the best in New Zealand. Locals say that Martinborough is the best place in the country to make wine. Winemaker Allan Johnson is first to agree and reels off the reasons: soil, water, and air, the three natural elements essential to making quality wine. Reliable dry autumns increase the intense flavours, and low cropping levels are produced by cool windy spring weather. Low cropping levels and undiluted flavours tend to create the essential ingredients of power and concentration from which fine, and even great wines are produced. Martinborough is one of the few areas where this situation is naturally imposed by the weather.

Palliser produces two labels that are recognised around the world for quality, Palliser Estate and Pencarrow. The Palliser Estate wines are a strong and distinct premium portfolio, whilst the Pencarrow range is in a different style, and offers very approachable wines of excellent quality. Palliser Estate's wines are served in some of the world’s finest restaurants, enjoyed by thousands of people every day and savoured by international passengers travelling the world with airlines such as Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa and KLM.

Palliser firmly believe that they are responsible for the care and management of their environment. It is the unique combination of soil, air and climate that allows Palliser to grow such outstanding grapes for their wines. Palliser Estate have an environment management system throughout the company that ensures that everything the winemakers do is considered on its environmental impacts. Palliser Estate have introduced a new system that re-uses the winery's wastewater for irrigation. The wines are in recyclable or re-useable packaging.

Palliser owns 90% of their own vineyards and invest heavily in viticulture to produce a great product. To date that investment has been paid off by the production of world class wines. Palliser is proud to be innovative in their approach to environmental aspects. In 1998 Palliser Estate Palliser were amongst the first wineries in the world to be certified to the international environmental standard ISO 14001.

These are grown on the various estate vineyards - Palliser, Pencarrow, Om Santi, Pinnacles and Clouston, which are all on the renowned Martinborough Terrace. The Palliser winemakers have found that even over this relatively small area, there are great differences in soil types and climate which all help to add complexity to the wines.
