Winemaker's Notes:

A very pale yellow color with almost clear edges glints with brilliance in the glass. A swirl produces a fresh minerality reminiscent of the nearby sea and acacia mingling with pear blossom. On the palate, the wine is light and lively, bringing zesty notes of green apple, pear and quince to the taste buds on a smooth slipstream of silky texture. Medium bodied, the wine displays an intriguing yin-yang of texture – both a pleasant oily viscosity and a sharp, tangy crispness. The finish is lingering, with classical notes of almond and a hint of spice.

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
