BEDROCK 2010 ROSE "ODE TO LULU" 750mL

Notes from Winemaker Morgan Twain-Petersen: As always this is a true rose (not saignee) of 120 year old vine Mourvedre from my Bedrock Vineyard. After a visit this Spring to Domaine Tempier and some additional conversations with the winemaker there I have revamped the way I make the rose a bit. In 2010 I picked the grapes at a super-low 20.9 brix, and instead of destemming the grapes prior to putting them in the press, I did the entire lot as whole-cluster. This meant less breaking down of the skins and less protracted skin-contact, thereby lowering both the color and tannin uptake. The wine was pressed to a stainless tank where it was fermented cold using indigenous yeasts to dryness and a low 12.8% alcohol (the label is wrong). Unlike previous years where full malolactic conversion was allowed to take place I only allowed limited MLF so as to preserve a bit more of the raciness imparted by the malic acid. This is the first year I am close to 100% pleased with the rose'-it is finally starting to resemble to the California-inflected graceful stuff I had envisioned.
