Wine Tasting NotesFrom the most popularly planted grape from the Friuli region of northeastern Italy, this delicate white exhibits a nose that blends sweet amaretto and honeyed aromas with lychee nut and citrus blossoms. On the palate distinct flavors of white peach blend with meyer lemon and blood orange. The balance provides a very clean and pleasing, lemon curd finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Palmina Tocai Friulano Honea Vineyard Santa Inez Valley 2005 : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 90 POINTS A knock-out bouquet of lemon rind, tropical fruit, and honey characterizes the 2005 Tocai Friulano Honea Vineyard. This fruity, dry, medium-bodied, pure, zesty Tocai should be consumed over the next 1-2 years. Drink: 2006-2008 Wine Advocate #166 (Aug 2006) Robert ParkerNVWE NOTES: This is a decidedly rich example of an attractive Italian varietal that is seldom seen in our state. It offers aromas of honeydew melon, lemon blossom, green gage plum and honey, with gently savory undertones suggestive of nut husks or oats. The texture is plush and the flavors are as rich as expected, with honeydew and lemon cream in the foreground. There is a welcome lemony zest to the lingering and richly textured finish and some nut husk and mineral hints as well. This is a very appealing sipper, but it would be at its best with rich white-sauced pastas. 550 cases produced.PALMINA TOCAI FRIULANO HONEA VINEYARD SANTA INEZ VALLEY 2005
