Benjamin Silver’s beskrivelse af vinen:
Located in the northern Los Alamos Valley, Premier Vineyard is at the intersection of 101 North and Palmer Road. “Coteau Palmer” or “Palmer Hillside” is my own fanciful description of this block, tucked back in a canyon, on a very steep sandy hill.
Planted to Swiss Clone 2A and Dijon Clone 115, the vines are now over 20 years old. The block faces southwest, and is protected from shifts in temperature and wind by the surrounding canyon walls. The fruit retains higher acid than my Santa Maria Valley fruit!
Yields barely reach 2 tons per acre, and the clusters and berries are very small.
