PALMINA 2012 PINOT GRIGIO SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 750mL

This winery can’t stay out of our newsletter! If you have been one of the customers that have cleaned us out of the winery’s other varietals, then you know why. The facts are undeniable; although this isn’t even California’s strong point, these Italian-varietal wines have made their mark here at the store.

Palmina is a Californian celebration of the rich, wonderful lifestyle and attitude toward food, wine, friends, and family that exists in Italy. Owner/winemaker Steve Clifton (also of Brewer-Clifton fame) took an interest during a trip to Italy to visit family, and after returning, he found himself working at an Italian restaurant in Laguna Beach. Today, he and his wife Chrystal, who studied at the University of Bologna and is fluent in Italian, have shown for several years that they make some of the tastiest Cal-Ital wines in California!

Truly a mélange of flavors, textures and nuances of the vineyards, and the very small and cool 2012 growing season. Pale, pale gold in color, this Pinot Grigio is crystal clear and brilliant in nature. A bouquet of citrus peel, wild arugula and honeysuckle tease the senses. A sip astonishes with crisp and refreshing acidity delivering white peach, Bosc pear and Fuyu persimmon flavors, all mingling with a stony, flinty character. Beautifully balanced, the wine lingers on the palate with nuances of nectarine and almond. This is a firm, focused wine with a beautifully dry finish that acts as its own worldwide ambassador for the perfect Pinot Grigio climate and soils of Santa Barbara County.
