Pahlmeyer is based on the ridgeline of Atlas Peak, a location which guarantees their vineyard an enormous amount of sunlight. And that’s what it’s all about – sunlight and clean air. With all of the sources of fruit for their wines above 1400 ft, they gain an average of three hours more sunlight than vineyards in lower altitude. These rich, warming rays produce deep, powerful and complex styles of wine. Cooler temperatures also prolong the growing season, allowing the clusters to hang longer on the vine and achieve optimal flavour development. Pahlmeyer are one of the great estates of Napa, and the Cellar’s are proud to be distributing them in the UK.
Pahlmeyer comes in two flavours - the highligh saught-after Estate Wines, and the Jayson range. As their second label Jayson uses all of the same fruit as the first range - but from the parcels not picked for the upper wine. This generates an exceptioanlly high quality wine at a decidedly friendlier price point!
