"Pale yellow. Pungent, mineral-laced aromas of pear, chamomile, lemon pith and succulent herbs. Densely packed orchard and pit fruit flavors are brightened by zesty minerality, with a hint of bitter lemon pith gaining strength with air. Refreshingly dry and stony on the finish, with the pear note repeating."

Product Description:

"Aromatic notes of fresh herbs, pink grapefruit, meyer lemon, and honeysuckle. The palate is tighter and more citrus driven than the 2012. Stone fruit, Asian pear, lemon peel and hints of lavender on the palate. Finishes dry and refreshing with nice weight and great minerality.

Arneis is an ancient grape that hails from the Roero hills of Italy's Piemonte region. It translates to "the little rascal" since it has a reputation of being a difficult grape to grow - one that will first test the patience of the grower and then the winemaker .

The Honea Vineyard in the "Los Olivos District" of the Santa Ynez Valley is the source for Palmina's Arneis. The vineyard's rolling hills, sandy alluvial soils and warm sunny days followed by cool and crisp evenings and meticulous farming create the perfect environment for taming the grape's "rascal " nature ." - Winery
