There’s a peachy hue to the light-pink wine, and that’s reflected in the nose. Hence, combining:
- wild strawberries, peach skin,
- Seville orange zest, with hints of sage, rosemary,
- and wild thyme for a beguiling aroma that begs you to keep smelling.
The Lorenza Rosé California 2020 palate is alive with perfectly ripe fruit—red berries, crunchy peach, and hints of citrus—backed by a minerality that keeps the wine electric and mouthwatering.
Laser-like attention to detail has always been the guiding light for the 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.
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.
