Crisp and steely, very dry with delicate cherry flavors. The wine is a light marachino cherry color. Its made with a lot of batonage (lots of time in contact with the lees, and the juice is circulated while this occurs to maximize contact) - this results in a creamy wine.

You’ve probably read about how Bonny Doon Vineyard has been cutting programs, changing management, and making other Big Changes. Quietly in the background, the winegrowing folks have completed converting the winery’s Ca’ del Solo vineyard in Salinas Valley to biodynamic viticulture, and the winemakers have produced a lovely wine to showcase it. That the grape is Albariño (along with even more exotic Loureiro and Treixadura, all natives of Portugal) makes this a doubly historic debut.Don’t be surprised at the wine’s lack of color – Albariño grape skins don’t confer hardly any. Just sniff the sweet, nutty aromas of hazelnuts, marzipan, and clover honey, then sip them into your mouth as flavors. The wine is light in body but sizable in personality for a fresh young white; the sweetness holds gently but firmly along with well balanced acid, and there's some rosewater on the finish along with a bit of fresh citrus. Well done all around.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine club members always receive discounts on our wines: 1-11 bottles, save 15% 12-35 bottles, save 20% 36 bottles or more, save 25% Galicia, the Iberian playpen of albariño, loureiro and treixadura, could not be more different than Soledad, yet these varieties seem to be enjoying their extended siesta in the Salinas Valley. This wine expresses a beautifully crystalline mineral aspect, great persistence on the palate, and a bracingly crisp, grapefruit, yuzu and tangerine dream. It is the perfect aperitif and wildly successful with Asian food or shellfish, the traditional Galician accompaniment.
