Tasting Notes

What a treat: Long Island Albariño. Planted in 2007, Palmer’s Albariño block was first harvested in 2010.This white is deliciously aromatic with floral and citrus notes. It dances on your palate and shines when paired with seafood. Winemaker Miguel Martin was born in Spain and has 20 years of winemaking under his belt. Limited quantity.

Staff Pick Notes

I've recently fallen in love with Palmer Vineyards and their obscure choices in grape varietals. At first I was hesitant about the strangeness of their choices but now I'm completely won over. Albariño is normally found in Spain, but this one is from Long Island and the first one of its kind at that! You'll find a fresh and zippy acidity with loads of citrus flavors that any Albariño drinker will love. I urge you to pick up a bottle today, as this was a very limited production. In one word I would describe this Albariño as "Fun". This one just makes me want to grab a bottle and go on a picnic.
