Palmina Malvasia Bianca Santa Ynez Valley Larner Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Palmina is more than a winery and enoteca. It is a philosophy and it is a passion. It is a strongly held belief that wine is an extension of the plate, a component of a meal and a means to bring people together. Formed by winemaker Steve Clifton in 1995, Palmina is named in honor of Steve’s great friend Paula, who taught him to love cooking, wine and the Italian lifestyle and who was a spark in Steve’s life. 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

The palate is an immediate yin-yang dance between the bright acidity of lemon, lime and mandarin with the creamy depth of flavors, viscosity and richness one would associate with passion-fruit, cantaloupe and green papaya
