Bedrock Wine Co., Ode to Lulu Old Vine Rosé, Sonoma Valley, Sonoma County 2015
Named in honour of Lulu Peynaud, the legendary chatelaine of Bandol’s Domaine Tempier, this Mourvèdre rosé bursts with watermelon, spring flowers, citrus and spice preface a fresh, supple wine with a savoury finish crying out for a Provençal feats. Morgan Twain-Peterson is one of the great exponents of California’s old vine heritage, and this bottling hails from a vineyard planted in the 1940s!
