Bedrock Notes: "It is amazing to think this is our 15th year making this wine. Never did I think, when I whole-cluster pressed a couple of tons of Bedrock Mourvèdre back in 2008, that it would become one of the most popular wines we make. One thing I did know then still holds true, though: we, as a winery crew, drink more of this than any other wine we make.
Over the last decade and a half, we have learned a lot about making this wine and the intricacies of making great rosé—of finding the balance between mouthwatering freshness and fruit weight, of finding that beautiful drop of grapefruit, stone fruit, and tarragon-like perfume that Mourvèdre can provide, while also maintaining its lightness of color and being. We are extremely proud of the 2022. As it has been for the last several vintages, it is based around old vine Mourvèdre grown in the sands of Contra Costa County and supplemented with Grenache and a bit of Syrah from other nice sites in Sonoma and El Dorado County. The wine fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel."
About the Name: Ode to Lulu is Bedrock’s love letter to the Bandol rosé. The wine is named for Lucie ' Lulu ' Peyraud of Domaine Tempier.
