    Winemaker Notes

    "Good deep red. Pungent aromas of dark cherry, licorice, rose petal and menthol. At once broad and sappy, with firm flavors of dark cherry, minerals, mint and spices, all firmed by an edge of acidity. A smooth, vibrant Pinot Noir that finishes with broad tannins and good spine."

    Winemaker Allan Johnson produces consistently superb wines, which reflect Palliser's prime vineyard sites in Martinborough. Their two brands – Palliser Estate and Pencarrow – offer a comprehensive portfolio of wines, including Chardonnay, Methode Traditionelle, Noble Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.

    A relatively young but extremely promising wine producing country, New Zealand is widely recognized for its distinctive wines made from the aromatic, Sauvignon blanc.

    The world’s most southerly vineyards are found here, with significant climatic variation both between and within the warmer North Island and the cooler South Island. Overall, the climate is maritime, with plenty of rainfall, as well as abundant sunshine. Producers have almost unilaterally embraced cutting-edge winery technology, resulting in clean, high-quality wines at every price point from wallet-friendly to premium.

    Sauvignon blanc, known here for its trademark herbaceous character, is at its best in Marlborough but thrives throughout the nation, accounting for an overwhelming majority of the country’s exports. While this is indeed the country’s most planted and successful variety, it is certainly not the only New Zealand grape capable of delighting wine lovers.

    Chardonnay is the second-most important white variety and takes on a supple texture with citrus and tropical fruit aromas in Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay, respectively. Pinot noir, second behind Sauvignon blanc in national production numbers, is at its best in Central Otago—the most southerly winegrowing region in the world! These wines are known for bright and juicy red fruit. Taking cues from the wines of Alsace, aromatic varieties like Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewürztraminer shine in Martinborough, while red Bordeaux varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot have found success in Hawke’s Bay. Throughout New Zealand but especially in Marlborough, Pinot noir and Chardonnay are used to produce traditional method sparkling wines.
