Palmina Pinot Grigio $16

Palmina, located on California’s Central Coast near Santa Barbara, is a pioneer in working with Italian varieties in the U.S. The wines capture the essence of the grapes while respecting what the California climate is capable of. In the case of Pinot Grigio, that means a lighter-bodied wine for such a cool climate. The wines are redolent of both citrus fruits and orchard fruits, all underpinned with zesty acidity. The wine straddles two styles, illustrating how intensely fruity Pinot Grigio can be.

    Hi GDP

    As always your articles are informative and interesting, as it is always good to showcase different interpretations of varietals and how terroir, wine making style and local conditions influence the finished product.

    However I noticed a lack of any reference or mention of Central European Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio as now in Austria, Germany and Hungary there are wineries and vineyards producing outstanding Pinot Gris wines. Yes they are different than Alsace and Alto Adige, but they are well made, fruit driven and offer quality for a reasonable price.
