Palliser Estate The Griffin Martinborough Méthode Traditionnelle (2017)

The 2017 vintage (5*) is an elegant, bottle-fermented blend of Pinot Noir (50 per cent) and Chardonnay (50 per cent), matured for over three years on its yeast lees. Bright, light lemon/green with an invitingly fragrant, yeasty bouquet, it is vivacious, with crisp, intense, citrusy, yeasty, slightly toasty flavours, tightly structured and complex, and a dryish, racy, lasting finish. It's drinking well now.
