Palmina Malvasia Bianca Santa Ynez Valley Larner Vineyard 2009
A pale golden color brilliantly shines in the glass, and that first heady bouquet wa??s forth with even a small swirl. Floral and fragrant, the exhilarating nose of the wine is perfumed with jasmine, lemon blossom and honeysuckle aromas. The sweet-smelling nose of the wine misleads and the palate is surprised with a first sip, as the Malvasia is a bond-dry wine with hints of ruby grapefruit mingling with apricot and lychee. Round and rich on the mid-palate with hints of honeycomb, and enhanced with textural reminders of Hibiscus tea, the wine finishes with a crisp, stoney minerality and briney character suggestive of Malvasia Bianca's seaside history.
External Reviews for Palmina Malvasia Bianca Santa Ynez Valley Larner Vineyard
Notes of honeyed melons, along with hints of white peach, spring flowers, and even a touch of mango represent an authoritative perfume of wonderful intensity. In the mouth, the same flavors are present in a medium-bodied, refreshing, and stunningly delicious dry white.
