Right around the time that Frank Potts was planting his nascent Bleasdale Vineyards during the 1850s, an eccentric Prussian named Herman Daenke established a homestead along the banks of Bremer River, which he called Metala. The site was planted to viticulture by Arthur Formby in 1891 and became one of Langhorne Creek's most productive vineyards, it continues to supply fruit for a number of prestigious national brands. Legendary winemaker Brian Dolan took the radical step of bottling Metala under its own label in 1959 and won the inaugural Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962. Two generations later, the brothers Tom and Guy Adams took a similar leap of faith and branded their Metala fruit as Brothers In Arms. The quality of wine re established Metala as a vineyard of..

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.

Palliser Estate
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 Estate

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. Palliser Estate are part of the Living Wine New Zealand group www.livingwine.org.nz, a group of wineries all certified to ISO 14001 and dedicated to continuous improvement of their environmental systems.

Palliser grow the varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. 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.
