Bedrock Wine Co, The Whole Shebang Cuvée XIV NV

£17.00

Description

Bedrock is a young project, started in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson MW (son of Joel Peterson, of Ravenswood fame), out of a friend’s chicken coop. Morgan’s business partner and old friend Chris Cottrell joined the project in 2013, and together they have been focusing on helping to preserve old, historic vineyards in California and expressing their character in Bedrock’s wines.

Morgan and Chris work with some very old field blends in Sonoma County, Napa, Lodi, Contra Costa and beyond. Some of these are the oldest vineyards in California. Most notably, Bedrock vineyard itself was the first California vineyard to be replanted after the ravages of phylloxera in 1888 and is home to some of the world’s oldest vines, some of which have yet to be DNA-profiled.

The Whole Shebang is a Mediterranean style multi-vintage blend aged in a solera system (no new oak). Predominantly made from old-vine Zinfandel, the blend also includes Carignan, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache, Syrah and Barbera. The result is a very fresh, ripe and perfumed red at excellent value.
