So, Corallina Syrah Rose is a mindful rose and we keep these Oak Knoll AVA Crane Vineyard vines in a state of serene rose-ness throughout the growing season. Each of these syrah grapes are in a state of serenity and inner pinkness from the moment of bud break until, just twelve months later, they become Corallina Syrah Rose. This is fruit destined to be a rose all the way from flowering to bottle.

As these syrah grapes arrive at the winery already having achieved enlightenment, it is our job to ensure that when you and Corallina come together that Nirvana is the result. To be sure this is the case we keep our hands off Corallina as much as we can.

Mere hours after harvesting the cool fruit arrives at the winery and immediately goes into the press. This whole cluster pressing is a key part of Corallina’s centered personality. In California saignee is the shady ying to the sunny yang of whole cluster pressed rose. The whole bunches of grapes that will be Corallina go into the press and over a slow, three hour press run these syrah grapes gradually reveal their pink soul. The juice goes immediately into a stainless steel tank where slowly, very slowly due to the cool temperature, it ferments to complete dryness. Then the new Corallina is racked into mature French Oak barrels for five months of meditation before it fulfills its destiny when the Corallina Wine Dance label finally adorns its bottle - just in time for summer.
