Palliser Estate Martinborough Riesling 2017

16-Nov-2017

The Palliser Estate Riesling is one of the finest examples of the variety from the Martinborough region. The medium-dry style always shows impeccable balance, and in doing so is one of the core wines from the company. 2017 was a challenging vintage with threatening rains prompting early picking for many varieties. Riesling, a later variety, has skins which retain integrity better than other whites, and if picked later can show the increased complexity of noble rot. This is the case with the Palliser Riesling in 2017. Winemaker Allan Johnson says that this vintage yielded Riesling wines with more mineral and acid expression. Here, I review the 2017 Palliser Estate Riesling, showing similar figures as previous vintages, but with a more taut style. www.palliser.co.nz
