Cória Estates Rosé of Pinot Noir
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This fruit was derived from 39 rows where Arched Canes were trellised in blocks 12 & 14 continuously.
- These vines yielded higher crop loads than their neighboring vines with traditional trellising. The vineyard soil is Nekia Clay Loam at an elevation of 600 fasl.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Processing: The harvest is machine picked. Yeast fermentation in stainless steel, no aging. CrossFlow filtration.
Tasting Notes: A bright crush of strawberry and kiwi explode at first, then rounds out with a touch of caramel and a soft luscious mouthfeel. The finish offers a hint of sweet black cherry and almond.
Cória Estates is a Mexican-American family-owned vineyard, winery, and tasting room in South Salem, Oregon. They have been growing grapes for more than 20 years in the heart of the Willamette Valley.
The story of Luis & Janice begins with separate family heritages and cultural backgrounds. Luis Coria was born and raised in Mexico spending his early years helping his father on the family farm. At age 14 he ventured further seeking opportunities and eventually found himself in Oregon. Janice grew up in a small town in northern Idaho. In the spring of 1979, while visiting family in Oregon, Janice met Luis and married him two years later. By 1985, they had welcomed two baby girls to the family! By now, Luis felt a need to get back to his farming roots. Today, the vineyard is a mature 104 acres planted in Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Viognier, and Riesling.
