Tasting Notes:

A luminescent pale straw hue nearly makes you salivate on its own, only to be outdone by gorgeous aromas of lime, kiwi and Asian pear with subtle notes of chamomile and a touch of exotic floral perfume. This continues on the palate with honeydew and passionfruit joining the crisp citrusy flavors, all carried beautifully by wonderful acidity for a long and satisfying finish. While light and refreshing, it offers enough body and length to be a good sipper both poolside as well as at the table.

About the Winemaker:

The estate winemaking traditions of Blue Rock are perhaps best summed up with the French term, terroir, which acknowledges the environmental factors that make the vineyard site unique including soil, weather, appellation, and to that effect, the human element as well.

Running an estate vineyard offers more control over the winemaking process, which yields handcrafted wines of distinction and soul that also give a sense of place. The name Blue Rock originates from the local soil studded with blue pebbles, rocks, and boulders of serpentine. The serpentine rock defines the unique flavor profile of the vineyard as it naturally yields a smaller quantity of grapes.

Additional Winemaker Notes:
Always a special labor of love, the 2019 vintage brought us back to a more traditional white Bordeaux-inspired Sauvignon Blanc blend. It was also the first vintage we had the pleasure of sourcing nearly 10% from Regalia Vineyard, our beautiful new Estate site in the Petaluma Gap. Fermented primarily in stainless steel for freshness and verve, we gained texture and layering with barrel-fermented Semillon and Viognier in the final cuvée.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Sauvignon Blanc offers a fun and dramatic example of wine and food coming together to make each other just that much better. Fruits de mer is a perfect place to start, from scallops, prawns, clams and mussels to just about any sushi, grilled whitefish or a nice petrale sole sautéed in butter, lemon and capers. A little spice also plays wonderfully well with SB, such as Thai, Vietnamese and Mexican fare. And for that warm evening out on the porch, a tomato basil panzanella or anything topped with a tropical fruit salsa will hit all the right notes.
About the Winery
Blue Rock Vineyard Dating back to 1880, the 100-acre Blue Rock estate tells the story of how European winemaking came to Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Italian immigrants brought with them olive trees, vine cuttings, and knowledge of grape growing. The region’s undulating golden hills and idyllic vistas even look reminiscent of Tuscany itself.
