Pencarrow and Palliser 2010 Releases

08-Dec-2010
The Pencarrow and Palliser Estate wines are easily the most consistently best value wines of the leading performers in Martinborough and this is a fact to be celebrated, especially in these times of economic toughness. This has provided considerable stability for the region and a good grounded image which has enabled all the wine producers work from a wonderful foundation. The cool and long growing season in 2010 has produced sleek-styled wines with strong aromatic profiles, and they will support the outstanding wines from 2008 that are still available and serious 2009 wines now emerging on the market. Winemaker Allan Johnson and his team can be very proud of these new and current releases, the Pencarrow wines more up-front and for earlier drinking, the Palliser Estate more classic renditions, of the best quality, able to age. Both labels are very successful. www.palliser.co.nz
