A soft, rounded Sauvignon Blanc with lush fruit. Pencarrow is the second-tier label of Palliser Estate, but this is a satisfying wine in its own right. More openly accessible, and if anything more up-front in flavour.

About Palliser Estate

Palliser Estate is based in the renowned Martinborough wine village. Palliser’s first grapes were harvested in 1989.

Excellent ratings proof the perfect growing conditions in one of the best-known regions in New Zealand. Martinborough has the most wineries per ha in New Zealand. They are small, family-owned boutique wineries.

Palliser Estate is part of the Family of Twelve. The Family of Twelve is a fraternity of twelve of New Zealand’s most prestigious and enduring artisanal wineries.

Palliser vineyards

Palliser Estate is well established as a leading winery in the ultra premium grape-growing region of Martinborough. They own six vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. The vineyard has spread across 85 hectares that produces predominantly Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling.

The Martinborough Terrace is a small but very special area of land located at the southern end of the North Island. Framed by the Ruamahanga and Huangarua Rivers which helped carve out the Terrace centuries ago.

Martinborough’s fertile and free-draining soil was created over the course of 20,000 years, as the Ruamahanga River and its contributing rivers exposed stony sub-soils, built up layers of alluvial river terraces and cast its silty river loam across the landscape.

The Palliser vineyards are within walking distance of each other. But they all produce quite distinctive wine styles reflecting the differences in soils and micro climates. Together, they create wonderful wines.

Sustainability

To continue to produce these great wines, Palliser puts a lot of effort to protect the environment. Excellent soil to produce excellent wines is only possible in a healthy, fertile environment.

As a result, Palliser estate has developed a sustainable approach to the land. They closely monitor and minimise all the impacts the winery has on the environment – from the sprays applied in the vineyard to all the packaging materials used. In 2009, they were the first CEMARS certified winery in the world.
