Pahlmeyer Chardonney 2019
According to Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "This is the first major release since Gallo purchased the Pahlmeyer brand in 2019. The winemaking is now headed by Katie Vogt. “I think making wine for somewhere like Pahlmeyer comes with some expectations,” she said during our recent tasting. “My job now is to learn what the current state is at this property. What are we farming? What are we making? You don’t go into a place like Pahlmeyer and throw out everything. You have to have respect. And once you have a good knowledge of what it is, you can look to make small changes. To build or evolve a program...it takes years.” These releases play to the strengths of the recent vintages, while maintaining a clear sense of identity. I look forward to following the development of this label."
