This wholly seductive wine is one of the best received Sauvignon Blanc in New Zealand, with a distinguished history of amassing the nation's most coveted winemaking awards to prove it. Palliser has been named NZ Trade & Enterprise's New Zealand Food & Beverage Exporter of the Year, for displaying leadership in developing systems which identify environmental impacts. Year in and year out, Palliser is counted on to deliver an immaculately classy and clean, stylish Sauvignon Blanc, fresh and lively, simply overflowing with flavour.
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.
TASTING NOTES
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.

More About Palliser Estate Winery
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»
