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.
