2015 PALMINA PINOT GRIGIO
Palmina was founded in 1995 by Steve Clifton, one of the founding partners of noteworthy Pinot Noir producer Brewer-Clifton. Palmina focuses entirely on Italian varietals sourced from their Central Coast stomping grounds in and around Santa Barbara County.
2015 Pinot Grigio is sourced entirely from the Honea vineyard in the newly established Los Olivos District AVA in Santa Ynez Valley.
Tasting notes: “There is a brilliance shining through the pale straw color of the wine. A swirl produces bright aromas of yellow stone fruit, Asian pear, and green guava. A first taste wakes up the palate with flavors of grapefruit and key lime pie. The wine has a bracing and lively fruit-acid balance, with nuances of minerality, and a long, lingering and pleasant lemon curd finish. Great texture! Organic.
Try this distinct Pinot Grigio at the table with creamy pasta dishes and richer seafood fare, or test its versatility on a warm day with antipasti or lighter, grilled seafood.
