2018 Bedrock "Alta Vista Vineyard" Moon Mountain Sonoma Valley Gewürztraminer (Previously $40)

SKU #1433784 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Gewürztraminer Alta Vista Vineyard Old Vine bristles with tension and energy. Bright floral notes give the 2018 striking lift to play off a range of Gewürztraminer varietal flavors and aromas. I would give it a year or two in bottle, as it is still pretty tightly wound. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

At Bedrock, they embrace uninoculated fermentations, native malolactic fermentation and the use of whole clusters in fermentation, minimal handling, rarely or never fine, avoid additions of things like water and tartaric acid, and would rather use no oak than cheap oak. Sounds good! Winery note: "After six years of farming, this 1940s-planted vineyard brought back from multiple years of neglect it is now firing on all cylinders. This small, 2.5-acre parcel is planted high above the town of Sonoma in the southeast flank of the Moon Mountain AVA on the Sonoma side of Mt. Veeder. Dry-farmed in Tuscan red clay loams around basalt outcroppings, the vineyard puts out small amounts of intensely perfumed and dense fruit. The result is a Gewurztraminer that is remarkably light on its feet and dense but refreshing."
