The Lorenza Rosé is as refined and graceful as a ballerina, yet truly brought the goods on the palate with focused vibrant fruit and cleansing minerality. It is styled after the Rosés of Provence, yet with a ripe (not sweet) character that California is perfect for. This ended up being a group favorite when paired against a number of seafood preparations, yet the one that stood out was a Seafood Avocado Salad with Ginger. In this preparation, the salad complemented the wine beautifully by adding hints of spice and salinity to the palate, and the Lorenza was the perfect wash of refreshing fruit after each bite.

2011 Lorenza Rosé – On the nose, I found green melon with spring flowers, almond skins and saline minerality. With air, the bouquet continued to blossom, gaining depth and richness. On the palate, it was soft and medium-bodied with fresh, young strawberries and a mineral core. It firmed up on the refreshing finish with pit fruits and a tinge of citrus.
