Winemaker's Notes

In Palliser Estate's Martinborough vineyards, they train the vines to achieve a low canopy density and well-exposed fruit. This combined with judicious leaf plucking produces the distinctive fruit flavors in the wine. When the grapes are judged to be at their optimum maturity, they are harvested and processed to retain the inherent fruitiness of this varietal.

Vibrant, lifted aromas of passion fruit, elderflower, green herbs and a hint of stone fruits. The palate is explosive with rich and succulent fruit characters and excellent mid-palate texture and weight. The refreshing acidity gives clean mouthfeel, and the flavors last and last. It is a lovely, expressive Sauvignon with beautiful balance and harmony.

"Palliser's wines seem to be improving across the range over recent vintages, with this being their best Sauvignon Blanc yet. A smoky, slightly fumé character marks the nose, then ripe peaches and nectarines wash across the palate, with just enough grassiness to impart varietal character. Plump and round, it's soft and approachable without being sloppy, ending on a note of ripe tangerines."
-Wine Enthusiast
