Scythian Wine Co. 'The Scythians' Palomino 2022
- In stock, ready to ship
The Scythians Palomino and is 95% Palomino and 5% of some unknown red and white varieties from the Lopez Vineyard, planted in 1912 in San Bernadino. The vines are on sandy granite, are dry-farmed (no irrigation) and have never been sprayed with any chemical treatments. This is a complex yet refreshing mineral white with structure and body to stand up to food. Aromas of mustard, ginger, chalk, and lemon pith are met with a bit of mint, ginger ale, and refreshing citrus on the palate. It's fermented in Cota 45 Sherry barrels wihich adds some subtle almond and pink sea salt notes. Exceptional and compelling.
