Bonny Doon Vineyard Riesling California Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling 2007

Member Review by danieboi:

Good wine, great value. I asked the folks at Calvert Woodley (in Washington DC) for dry reisling, expecting to be shown something from Europe. I was surprised when I was shown the "Pacific Rim 2007 Dry Reisling." I really like this wine! I guess dry reislings are still a little sweet. But, true to form, it is sweet, crisp and fruity. It goes down very smoothly. No bitterness or tanins; the wine is crisp but not acidic, which in the Summer is quite nice. I am giving this wine 4 glasses.

Based in Santa Cruz, the heartland of New Age thinking and dreaming, Bonny Doon Vineyard has a not so surprising history of idealism and innovation. Founded in 1983 by Randall Grahm, Bonny Doon is known for strikingly original wines made from “lesser” known grape varieties, the so-called vinous Ugly Ducklings. Originally focused on pinot noir, Bonny Doon Vineyard made its mark on the vinous world with its pioneering work with Rhône varieties and innovative production techniques. Since the adoption of Biodynamic® farming practices in 2004, Bonny Doon Vineyard wines evince a deeper sense of place, complexity, varietal expression and a noticeable sense of organization. We invite you to share in our most passionate and terrestrial expressions ~ the wines of Bonny Doon Vineyard. To all our Big House and Cardinal Zin Fans: In an effort to return to our roots and re-focus on the production of unique and distinctive, biodynamically produced wines truly expressive of place, President and Winemaker Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard sold the rapidly growing BIG HOUSE and CARDINAL ZIN brands in July 2006 to the Wine Group, a management-owned wine company based in San Francisco. “I had been raving on long enough about the transcendental value of terroir; it was time to translate mere words into deeds. Today, the winery is much smaller, just 35,000 cases (and shrinking) we’re making fewer kinds of wine and we’re highly focused on making the most soulful wines we can possibly muster – wines of vibrant vitality, a deeper sense of place and life force.” Read less
