2020 Palliser Estate Pinot Noir: Michele's notes - Brooding aromas of dark spectrum fruits, chocolate, blood plum and meat. Lively in the mouth, with volume and gritty energy - the fruit has bounce and persistence, but the overall effect is one of plushness. Very satisfying.
2021 Palliser Estate Hua Nui Vineyard Pinot Noir DECANTER World Wine Awards 97 points BEST IN SHOW: Michele's notes - An outstanding new release from a vineyard at the edge of the revered Martinborough Terraces, planted in 1998. Hua Nui translates as "fruits of abundance" an apt name for the wine is indeed chock full of dark briary fruits, along with more earthy elements of coffee, cocoa, blood/stone and even rare beef. The aromas are enchanting and the palate is even more so with its silky/satiny texture and depth of flavour, all the while retaining lively pinot energy and incredible persistence.
