Bonny Doon is an iconic California winery run by Randall Graham. Randall has experimented with various varietals and blends over the years and pioneered honest and responsible winemaking in California, while still having fun with it! Bonny Doon are known for their Rhone blends which are world class. Bonny Doon Vineyard has enjoyed a long history of innovation – the first to truly popularize Rhône grapes in California, to successfully work with cryo-extraction for sundry “Vins de Glacière, the first to utilize microbullage in California, the first to popularize screwcaps for premium wines, and, quite significantly, the first to embrace true transparency in labeling with its ingredient labeling initiative. The upside of all of this activity has brought an extraordinary amount of creativity and research to the California wine scene; the doon-side, as it were, was perhaps an ever so slight inability to focus, to settle doon, if you will, into a single, coherent direction.
Dry and delicious rosé showing wild strawberry, peach, guava, rhubarb and a discreet scent of white pepper. Long on the palate with a subtle creamy texture.
A beautiful accompaniment to any picnic, it is in its element helping while away the hours on an alien-seeking excursion (suggested accompaniment: crisps and a sandwich). It is irresistibly delicious, so should you encounter extra-terrestrials, you may have had a glass more than you intended…
