Rob Report: Best of the Best-Palmaz Florencia Muscat

Best of the Best – Best Domestic Dessert Wine – Palmaz Florencia Muscat

Rob Report | By Janice O’Leary, Sara L Schnieder | June 16, 2020 | Original Article

Palmaz is best known for its big steak-worthy reds— and for its high-tech winery innovations. But it also produces a limited amount of this gentle, gorgeous Muscat Canelli. Minus the sugary overtones often found in Italian Muscats, the Florencia tastes like the purest expression of this grape, largely attributable to its cold fermentation. A delicate bouquet lures you in, but its fresh, clean and dry palate comes as a surprise. While this is a dessert white, it tastes only lightly sweet, a testament to the lower alcohol levels we’re seeing across genres, coming in at 13 percent. $65, palmazvineyards.com

At the winery, we either suspend the pan above the fire pit or use a portable propane stove as the heat source. Whether you are preparing for four or 40 people, this dish takes just 40 minutes to prepare.
