A great representation of French Rhone grapes grown in California. Rich and waxy, mouth-coating – like a great olive oil. Surprisingly easy-drinking for a wine with so much going on. Bursting with yellow peach, honeydew, and apricot. Creamy and nicely round – like a peach lassi. 

Delicious With

Great with acidic or creamy sauces, like lemon or orange-based concoctions over chicken or fish. Delicious with creamed spinach and buttery chicken.

Their Cred

Riding Monkey began as a project between two friends. Deter (a winemaker from South Africa) and Nick (an ex-medic looking for the good life) bonded through their love of riding motorcycles. When it comes to wine, Nick and Dieter share the same belief; the value of wine is only measured by the company you share it with. The term ‘riding monkey’ refers to the rider in the sidecar. So they had this crazy idea to make wine – the kind they want to drink. The result? Delicious, premium, small-batch wine that doesn't take itself too seriously. It’s meant to be enjoyed in the moment and shared with good company.
