Lorenza Rosé California 2018 | Seriously delicious rosé!
Lorenza Rosé California 2018 presents a pale, pink salmon in the glass. Supremely aromatic, with a mineral-tinged bouquet of white peach and Meyer lemon blossoms, with distinct mountain strawberry and rose petal notes. An electrifying mouthfeel yields to an elegant, crisp finish that is dry and mineral through and through with fresh cranberry and bright citrus lingering. Drink over the next year or two. We’ll be surprised if a case lasts the summer.
Winery | Lorenza Rosé California 2018 is gorgeous with its luminous pale rose-gold hue and the heady perfume of roses and Meyer lemon blossoms. The palate is focused with prominent salinity laced with citrus, the essence of guava, delicate mountain strawberry, cranberry, and white peach. The finish is laser-crisp and mouthwatering.
Laser-like attention to detail has always been the guiding light for mother-daughter team behind Lorenza, Melinda Kearney, and Michèle Ouelette. So, their first release was in 2008. But their history goes back nearly two decades before. That’s when Melinda first fell in love with the dry rosés of Provence in 1990.
Winemakers Melinda Kearney & Michele Ouelette | Girls Just Having Fun
From the very first vintage in 2008, mother-daughter team Melinda Kearney and Michèle Ouelette have been laser-focused on making this delicate beauty. Rather drawing from gnarled old vines. Melinda and Michèle both fell in love with rosé, separately.
Melinda grew to love the dry rosés of Provence as she learned every aspect of the wine business since 1990. While then working in everything from production to sales. Melinda’s daughter Michèle encountered rosé as a teenaged model in Paris, as le vin avec le diner. While her French hosts not thinking twice when serving their young and gorgeous guest. When Melinda and Michèle decided to start their own label, they chose to focus on dry rosé.
