Palliser Estate Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018


The Palliser Estate Sauvignon Blanc is arguably the Wairarapa’s leading wine of that variety, having won many gold medal awards over the years. The style that winemaker Allan Johnson produces is that more in the ripe tropical fruit and pungent passionfruity expression which has the palate richness to match. There have been vintages and bottlings that have had a more refined style, but I believe that the Palliser clientele do appreciate the fuller style. Even the 2017, from a vintage which lent itself to making more slender wines, it possessed the passionfruity flavours (click here to see my review). It’s a winning formula that combines the bold fruitiness of the Marlborough wines, with the richer weight from examples from the North Island, particularly Hawke’s Bay. Here, I review the 2018 Palliser Estate Sauvignon Blanc. www.palliser.co.nz
