Picpoul, Bonny Doon Vineyards 2019 (Monterey, California)

The redoubtable Beeswax Vineyard in the Arroyo Seco of Monterey county has the very singular habit of producing white grapes all of which coincidentally enough express the unique scent of well, beeswax. Along with beeswax, one apprehends the rather discreet, scent of white flowers and perhaps pineapple. But while the scent of picpoul is subtle, one is forcefully struck by the wine's bracing acidity and its unique savoriness.
