Picpoul, Bonny Doon Vineyards 2020 (Monterey, California)
One of our favorites from the legendary Randall Grahm. This is biodynamic Picpoul from the Beeswax Vineyard in Arroyo Seco, in Monterey County just inland from Big Sur. Made all in steel with minimal sulfur added. Classic Picpoul notes of lemon zest and crushed oyster shells with nice texture and maybe a little more aromatics than her French cousins, but still spot on for the varietal. Crisp and refreshing and beautifully made.
