This wine is a Rose of Pinot Noir made in the Methode Ancestrale tradition from the Topotero Vineyard, located in Avila Beach in San Luis Obispo County. The vineyard is farmed practicing organic on a home ranch just over a mile from the Pacific Ocean. The wine was whole cluster pressed and then fermented in neutral french oak barrels with native yeast. The wine was bottled at the very end of fermentation to capture the natural bubbles in the bottle. The wine aged on lees in bottle before being riddled, disgorged, corked and caged, all by hand. 264 cases produced.
Finished Wine Chemistry: 11.5% alcohol, 3.25 pH, 7.2 g/L TA, No added SO2
Scar of the Sea was established in 2012 and is owned & operated by Mikey & Gina Giugni in San Luis Obispo, California.
The Central Coast offers us the opportunity to live, work, and play by the sea, who is influential to the vineyards we work with and how we spend our time. The ocean’s presence has shaped our way of life along with the climate, soils, and geology of the coastal vineyards we work with that fall under the spell of her fog each day.
Scar of the Sea focuses on working with farmers who are instrumental in farming for the future and making wines with as little intervention as possible. Our wines are made with the intention to tell a story of where they come from, the people who farm them, and reflect each vintage under the California sun.
