Palliser Estate ‘The Griffin’ Methode Traditionnelle 2015


Palliser Estate has held the crown for the premier sparkling wine in the Martinborough district from the start. Part of its success is due to the breadth of vineyard source for the fruit which enables appropriate blending for balance. Another part of its success is due to the considerable care and attention to making what many regard as one of the most technically difficult styles. And credit must be given to the consistently log maturation on lees, this being a requirement for complexity. There have been some other excellent sparkling wines made in the Wairarapa, but none has the consistency of the Palliser Estate. Here, I review the new release method traditionnelle, in new livery and carrying a new name: ‘The Griffin’.
