2023 Kleinlerer Cuvée Sacha & Nitza Rosé of Cinsault 
Bruella Ranch (Organic)
Lodi, California

This release of Cuvée Sacha & Nitza, is the first Rosé produced from Cinsault. This grape variety originates from Provence where it shines as a light, floral rosés. You can also find beautiful, fresh red wines from the Rhône Valley.

Cuvée Sacha & Nitza is named in honor of my parents’ memory. Our home was a blend of cultures, fiercely passionate personalities, varied interests, and warmth towards all. Neither a white nor a red wine, rosé stands uniquely on its own and shares qualities of both styles of wines. This wine is a reflection of the wonderful memories I have of them.

This Cinsault – or Black Malvoisia Clone 3 – is from Bruella Ranch, an organically farmed vineyard grown by the Spaletta Family in Lodi. The sandy soils along the Mokelumne River drain easily resulting in a bright, refreshing, lighter rosé with notes of strawberry, watermelon, and flowers, while balanced with high acidity. This wine is fermented in neutral French oak barrels using indigenous yeast and aged in said barrels. As usual, the wine is unfined, unfiltered, and produced with minimal sulfur. It is reminiscent of a Provençial rosé, and unexpected from a California wine.

While enjoying this wine will bring you to the shores of the Mediterranean, this is the perfect wine to sip year-round with just about anything – like my mother’s incredible salads, Schnitzel or Chicken Soup, or my father’s famous Chicken with Lemon Sauce or garlic pasta.

I invite you to raise a glass of Cuvée Sacha & Nitza to those you love.
