Palmina Arneis Santa Ynez Valley Honea Vineyard 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Light golden in color with bright highlights first hint of the interconnected contrasts of this complex wine. On the nose, tangy aromas of pear and lime zest mingle with rich honeyed perfume A first sip confirms the crispness, followed by a palate coating texture that brings young anjou pear and key lime, then lychee, starfruit and finishes with hints of mexican sage and a limestone minerality. A persistence reminiscent of pomelos and almond lingers until the next sip.

After Paula succumbed to breast cancer, Steve found that her given name on her Italian birth certificate was Palmina, and the winery was thus fittingly named. Read less
