2010 Bonny Doon Vineyard Central Coast Albariño
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Light yellow. An aromatic bouquet displays melon, quince, honeysuckle and jasmine. A fresh, silky midweight withs juicy pit fruit and honeydew flavors and a hint of bitter orange pith. The snmooth finish features good cut and grip, and a repeating orange note.
Previously labeled Ca' del Solo, Bonny Doon's 2010 Central Coast Albarino is one of the most distinct bottlings of the varietal in California. A fresh and clear nose of lemon, bay laurel, and citrus blossom introduce a textured palate of grapefruit, lemon, and marzipan. It is a natural pairing with seafood, goat cheese, or briny foods like green olives. This Albarinio is sourced from 65% Ca’ del Solo Vineyard in Monterey County and 35% Jespersen Ranch in San Luis Obispo.
