The Luminary Martinborough 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and 2013 Pinot Noir

Last year Palliser Estate introduced a third tier brand, 'The Luminary', to supplement the premium ‘Palliser Estate’ and ‘Pencarrow’ wines, designed specifically for the FMCG channels. As with all of the wines from Palliser Estate, the fruit comes wholly from the Martinborough district, and the viticulture and winemaking is of the same high standards. The wines are blended essentially for more immediate enjoyment and accessibility. The fruit for the wines comes from blocks that consistently provide fruit in the appropriate style, and the winemaking team put together the components accordingly. As can be expected, the brand has achieved success, the 2014 Pinot Gris judged gold and Champion Pinot Gris at the 2015 New World Wine Awards. Here, I review the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and 2013 Pinot Noir.
