Only one more sleep until the start of the VISA Wellington on a Plate culinary festival! Boulcott Street Bistro chef Rex Morgan is presenting at the Wellington Fisher & Paykel Masterclass on Sunday 12 August with Palliser as the Presenting Partner. We hope some of you can make it to this event, or to the many others during a very foodie 2 weeks in Wellington. We will also be at the “Live Harvest Oyster Saloon” event which is evenings outside Floriditas on Cuba Street, and at Moore Wilsons for the “Food Hero” day on Sunday 19 August. Hope to see you there!

Here is the more eloquent & thorough review by Raymond Chan of our 2011 Estate Chardonnay (which he gave 5 stars) http://goo.gl/bcW7Y:
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, light on edge. The nose is full and voluminous with ripe stonefruit and citrus aromas, finely concentrated, revealing layers of flinty lees and buttery MLF elements. Medium-full bodied, soft flavours of grapefruit and butterscotch gently fill the mouth, with complexing notes of flint, nutty oak and butter in the background. Fine, lacy acidity and a fine textural thread are counterpoised by barrel-ferment creaminess. This has an elegant concentration and depth that carries through to a very sustained finish with citrus fruit flavours, This gently mouthfilling Chardonnay has complexing layers of flavour and is elegant and lively in expression. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 3-5 years. 85% clone 95 and 15% Mendoza fruit, fully barrel-fermented, half with indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in oak on lees, stirred only once, with 32% undergoing MLF. 18.5-/20 Aug 2012 RRP $30.00

Jane has joined our team on a permanent basis, replacing Narida as our Cellar Sales Manager.
Jane has worked for Palliser in the winery for the last 2 vintages and in the vineyard on-and-off over that time, so knows exactly what has gone into making our wines. In her previous life Jane was an Electrical Engineer but in 2010 went back to university to study wine, gaining a Graduate Diploma in Oenology & Viticulture (with Distinction) from Lincoln University.
It’s great having Jane on board in a permanent capacity. She brings heaps of enthusiasm & experience to the role – it’s just her fork-lift driving skills she needs to work on!!
