Palmina Malvasia Bianca Santa Ynez Valley Larner Vineyard 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intensely floral with perfumes of oranges, lychee and mineral base notes with lots grapefruit and sweet herb character. Bright, precise and focused in the mouth with a narrow band of almost delicate floral, citrus and mineral flavors that gain height on the back of the palate before segueing into a very tense, very mineral long zesty finish. 88pts

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

Light bright gold. An explosively perfumed bouquet evokes pit fruits lavender honeycomb and toasted grain with a strong topnote of white pepper. Rich but lively with impressive depth to its nectarine quince and lavender flavors. Finishes bright and racy with lingering florality and excellent persistence. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2010 Malvasia Bianca Larner Vineyard is arguably the most varietally true of the whites. Exotic passion fruit mint and peaches are some of the aromas and flavors that flow from this gorgeous wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

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

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.
