Cellar for up to 3 years. Serve chilled.

Bonny Doon winery was founded in 1983 by maverick winemaker Randall Grahm who studied philosophy before falling in love with wine and pursuing a degree in viticulture at UC Davis. Grahm later became known as the ‘Rhone Ranger” for his commitment to introducing California to classic Rhone varietals and blends including GSM or Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre blends.

The philosophy at Bonny Doon focuses on minimal intervention in the winery and growing the very best grapes possible from vineyards where conditions are well-suited to each variety. This light bodied white wine is made from the Picpoul grape which is famous in the South of France for its vibrant wines which are high in refreshing acidity. The grapes are sourced from Beeswax Vineyard in Arroyo Seco which has ideal terroir for the variety thanks to its relatively cool climate.

On the nose there are delicate aromas of lemon, apple, pear and ripe peach while the first sip reveals a light body, mouthwatering freshness and distinctive minerality or salinity. The finish is pure and clean with hints of citrus zest. Perfect for pairing with oysters, shrimp and other fresh seafood dishes as well as pan-fried fish and leafy salads.
