Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant with finely concentrated and taut flavours of red cherry and berry fruit entwined with fresh herbs and an amalgam of red florals and spicy oak. The fruit shows well on the front palate and is enlivened by crisp acidity with light, supple tannin extraction providing support and forming a round, soft core and line. This is an elegant, up-front, fragrant and pretty Pinot Noir with red berry fruits, florals, herbs and spices on a supple, refreshing palate.
About Palliser Estate
“Our passion is to produce hand crafted elegant wines with purity of flavour that reflects a sense of our place, Palliser.”
When Captain Cook came to New Zealand he was travelling on gut instinct. A conviction that beyond the horizon there was something great waiting. He must have really loved this place because he named their coastline Cape Palliser after his revered patron and fellow explorer Admiral Hugh Palliser. This is now the region where Palliser makes their wine.
Great wines that deliver on the promise of standing on the edge of the world and then going that little bit further.
