2020 Bonny Doon 'Beeswax Vineyard' Picpoul Arroyo Seco
Winemaker Notes: “Picpoul or “lip-stinger” is known, of course for its tingling acidity, but coupled with its singular savoriness, it creates a dramatic sensation on the palate. I know that it’s impossible to smell the sensation of saltiness, but the nose of our Picpoul is maritime, coupled with a discreet suggestion of peaches, wildflowers, and the (we really can’t help it, but it’s in there) ubiquitous fragrance of beeswax. This wine is utterly brilliant with the briniest oysters you can find or Dungeness crab.
Wine Enthusiast - "Strong chiseled stone aromas meet with light nectarine and Tuscan melon on the nose of this bottling. Clean and delicate on the palate, the wine's bright and tense form surrounds peach and riper green-apple flavors."
Wilfred Wong - "The 2020 Bonny Doon Vineyard Beeswax Vineyard Picpoul delivers an attractive is a rewarding experience. This wine offers forward and enticing aromas and flavors of apple jelly and sandalwood. Enjoy it with smoked trout deviled eggs and ikura sashimi."
Tasting Panel - "Bright, tangy, and fresh, with crisp acidity; juicy and appealing. Get to know this Rhône variety, because it’s doing very well in California. "
