2019 Bedrock Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma County
Product Description: “The 2019 Sonoma Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a wine that focuses as much on weight and texture as on the aromatics the grape is known for. The wine comes entirely from musque clone grown at Uboldi Vineyard (93%) in Kenwood and Judge Vineyard (7%) in Bennett Valley. As always, fermentation was done in a mixture of tank and barrel, with 65% of the wine seeing elevage in lightly toasted 320-liter cigare barrels developed specifically for the variety. For me, Uboldi fruit almost always has a melon-like character that I find quite becoming– in some years it feels more like honeydew or Crenshaw and in some years, it veers more towards to the orange-fleshed cantaloupe side of the spectrum. This weightiness is balanced by the site’s acidity and the inclusion of a small amount of the always vibrant Judge Vineyard.” – Winery
Bedrock Wine Co. was founded in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson in a 550 square-foot, former chicken coop with 8 foot ceilings and no fermentation space. After six years of Bedrock being a one-man-show, Morgan was able to talk his best friend, Chris Cottrell, into moving to California from New York to join him. They now happily have a little more space to move around in but share the same objectives that guided the winery at the start.
The winery’s objectives are:
To channel the fruit of ancient vines into powerful, elegant, and distinctly Californian wines.
To spread the gospel of Syrah in California by sourcing fruit from great terroirs throughout the North Coast.
To proclaim the greatness of Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon by sparing no expense on wines of uniqueness and personality.
To reclaim rose’ from the excesses of saignee and focus on precision, delicacy, aromatics, and food friendliness.
To make fascinating and quixotic white wines from unique sites and interesting varietals.
To dream big but keep production low!
