Palliser Estate Martinborough Riesling 2018

27-Jul-2018

Palliser Estate in Martinborough is arguably best-known for its Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, but the likes of Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris are very much at the same standard, as are the method traditionnelle wines nowadays. There has been a definite step up with the wines over the last few years, with the Palliser Estate team recognising the importance of attaining the highest possible quality, a point C.E.O. Pip Goodwin confirmed at the release of ‘The Great Riddler’ Chardonnay 2016 tribute wine to Richard Riddiford (click here to see my report and review). Winemaker Allan Johnson has always made wines of finesse and elegance, and the arrival of Guy McMaster working in vineyard and winery, along with the consultancy of Oliver Masters has no doubt contributed to the progress. Here, I review the new release 2018 Palliser Estate Riesling, always a beautiful wine in previous vintages. www.palliser.co.nz
