Martinborough is the oldest and best known wine area within the Wairarapa region, with over thirty wineries located around the picturesque township located at the foot of New Zealand's North Island, just 1.5 hours drive from Wellington. Historically, the district is notable for some of New Zealand's first Pinot Noir and Shiraz wines of any considerable quality. Unfortunately, at the time, Prohibitionist sentiment had settled in the region and the promise that early ventures showed was abruptly cut short. Today the region is primarily recognised for the production of world class Pinot Noir.
Under the Pencarrow label, which is the second label of Palliser Estate, this Pinot Noir has built a solid reputation as one of the best value for money Pinot Noir’s to be found in the marketplace.
The wine was made using traditional Burgundian techniques and matured for 10 months in French oak. Semi translucent deep crimson mauve colour with mauve crimson hue. Perfumed aromas of dark cherries, anise and toasty cedar followed by some spicy end notes. Excellent varietal character and intensity. Light to medium weight the palate delivers plenty of richness and a soft fleshy texture. Flavours of dark cherries, anise, light toast and spice. Excellent power wave for it’s price point with very fine grained soft tannins. Long anise, dark cherry and spicy toasted cedar aftertaste.
Drink it over the next 2-3 years (2011-2014)
