The Luminary 2018 Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir


The Luminary is a secondary brand created by the Palliser Estate team in Martinborough for the FMCG channels. The fruit for the wines comes generally from the company’s own and contracted vineyards, and in the final analysis is a blending of components that are considered with what is employed in the Palliser Estate and Pencarrow labels. As such, the wines offer very good varietal character and style. They are made with approachability in mind as well. Some of the wines have gone on to high show competition awards. ‘The Luminary’ pays tribute to the inspirational people behind Palliser Estate, with the late Richard Riddiford coming to mind. Here, I review the new release 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
