The Luminary Martinborough Pinot Noir 2016

The Luminary is a tertiary brand of Palliser Estate created for alternative distribution and sales channels including FMCG. The remarkable aspect of the wines I’ve found is their good quality. Clearly the fruit from Palliser Estate’s vineyards for all its brands is of a high level. Sure, there are some parcels that ae better than others, but generally, all of the wines from Palliser Estate, such as the second label ‘Pencarrow’ and tertiary ‘The Luminary’ tiers offer quality. I would suggest that the selection of wine for each label is a combination of quality and style, the Pencarrow and The Luminary wines are generally made to be more accessible and up-front, and possibly with style characteristics that may not fit in with the stricter parameters for the premium Palliser Estate wines. Here, I review the new release ‘The Luminary Pinot Noir 2016. www.palliser.co.nz
