Tasting Notes - Sauvignon Blanc

For the 2018 re-launch and tasting room opening we have returned to Griva Vineyard to bottle a fresh & exciting Sauvignon Blanc from Arroyo Seco.  Safe to say across the board Sauv Blanc is Kori's personal favorite grape varietal when reaching for a bottle to both entertain guests or to enjoy in the backyard.  The nose opens with notes of lychee, green apple, light tropical fruit aromas & lemongrass.  On the palate you should find grapefruit, jasmine, citrus peel & wet stone.

Available for $24/bottle

Tasting Notes - Rosé

The 2018 harvest was our first endevaour picking for and producing a rosé wine.  The grapes are exclusively Pinot Noir sourced from our Highlands Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands.  So far we've been able to enjoy it on its own at the beach or with a salmon salad for lunch showing that the notes of rose petal, Rainer cherry, wet gravel, crab apple & stone fruit let it be enjoyed in a mix of places. 

Available for $24/bottle.

See You Soon in Carmel-by-the-Sea!

The Court of the Fountains

We've found the location and are excited to be opening in The Court of the Fountains between Lula's Chocolates & Bixby Barber...just across from the patio of Anton & Michel.

Still working on some updates to the space and for some new wines to be ready but we anticipate opening with limited days/hours around the end of February or early March.

Cooking with Wine

Use a nice dry white wine like Sauvigon Blanc or Chardonnay to add taste & flavor to a great dish with shallots, mustard and braised chicken.

Cooking with Wine

Cast Iron Filet Mignon 
Keep it simple in prep and seasoning. Salt & pepper before cooking, heat ghee in cast iron skillet & sear 2-2.5 minutes each side.  Put skilling & steaks into 425 degree pre-heated oven for 6 min for medium-rare & 7 min for medium . How to include the wine: Drink before, during & after the meal. In addition to that after removing skillet from oven & letting the steaks rest for 10 min in foil put the skilled back on the stove splash in some wine, garlic and rosemary and reduce for 10-12 minutes for steak sauce.

We used grass-fed steaks from The Meatery in Seaside, CA.

KORi Supporter - Winery Reflections

We're very excited as we re-launch the brand to already be developing relationships with KORi fans throughout the state.  Nathan & Courtney at Winery Reflections do an amazing job reviewing wines and have already enjoyed some Pinot & Syrah. 

Their thoughts on the 2014 Pinot Noir: Dense black cherry, fresh hay, succulent red plum. Wild raspberry, nutmeg, a massive bouquet of youthful violets. Subdued oak framing a deep core of ethereal fruit. Saline, stoney, and fresh - like wading through a tide pool at low tide. This 2014 KW Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir by KORi wines is an undiscovered gem hiding out in the Santa Lucia Highlands.
