SKU: 16 Pinot Grigio

When Steve Clifton first launched Palmina in 1995, he only made red wine. At that time, the only white grapes available that were recognized as Italian in Santa Barbara County were Pinot Gris (aka Pinot Grigio). Having worked in restaurants for many years, Steve promised himself he was not going to make another Pinot Grigio that consumers viewed as "a water substitute." What sets Palmina's Pinot Grigio apart is its texture and flavors a result of both Steve's meticulous farming practices and winemaking style.


Tasting Notes
The pale straw color of the wine shows brilliantly in the glass. On the nose, aromas of lemon pith, meringue, quince, Asian pear and Mandarin orange. There’s a trace of herbs as well, with hints of a spicy basil and lavender. The wine has a rich, round, voluptuous mouthfeel with a pleasant, creamy lemon meringue quality. Finishing with bright acidity and a slight brininess, the wine lingers on the palate with a touch of key lime, citrus and minerality.


Food Pairing Notes
The creaminess of the Pinot Grigio with its bright, lemony acidity lends itself to a wide array of foods especially creamier pastas such as risotto, cheese plates, cured meats like salami, crab cakes, grilled fish and many other seafood recipes.
