My latest Bedrock ordered last week, so tried:
1. Bedrock Staves of Waidhofen SauvBlanc SonomaVlly/SonomaCnty (14.1%; 74% Uboldi/26% JudgeFamily vnyds;
www.BedrockWineCo.com) 2018
: Med.gold color; lovely very fragrant ripe/honeydew melon rather floral/gardenias slight pencilly/oak almost muscat-like/perfumed nose; rather tart/tangy/lemony slight pencilly/oak strong melony/honeydew/SB some floral/gardenias fairly rich/lush balanced bit complex flavor; very long/lingering lush/ripe/floral/gardenias/SB/honeydew almost Muscat-like finish; almost reminds a lot of Sauvignon Musque in its perfume; a beautiful SB that reminds some of the best from Friuli/Slovenia or SudStiermark; one of the best in Calif SB. $28.00

A wee BP:
1. Waidhofen: This is the village where Franz Stockinger makes his barrels.
Stockinger
Stockinger/Trevallon
These are regarded as the ne plus ultra of oak barrels. They are imported into the US by RajPaar and JaimieMotley.

Really?! As good as Peter Michael? As good as MacLaren? As good as Ch. Boswell's Jacqueline? As good as Mondavi To Kalon Fumé Blanc?
