FROM THE PRODUCER:
THE WINE: This wine is a blend of two Santa Maria Vineyards. The younger plantings are from Rancho Ontiveros Vineyard and the old vine plantings are from Rancho Vinedo Vineyard, planted in 1973.
Both of these vineyards are farmed using organic farming practices.
The 2022 vintage is a compilation of 5 separate picks, fermented with native yeast and partial whole cluster. The wine aged for 7 months in old french oak barrels and was racked the first time to bottle, unfined and unfiltered, with minimal sulfur used.
Think candied cherry, juicy cranberry, and earl grey tea leaves.
2,256 cases made
THE PRODUCER: Scar of the Sea was established in 2021 and is owned & operated by Mikey and Gina Giugni in San Luis Obispo, California. Scar of the Sea's focus is on farming for the future.
We are regenerative biodynamic farmers. We work with only organic farmers throughout California throughout California who share the same vision with us to farm for a better future.
Each new harvest season, we find space to continue our self evolution and expand our creative efforts in our winemaking regime while maintaining our dogmatic, transparent approach by prioritizing our organic vineyard sourcing, fermenting with native yeast, making wines without any fermentation additions, and bottling in the absence of fining/filtration.
All the wines we produce see a minimal amount of sulfur before bottling that is based on the wines natural pH to retain freshness and longevity. The wines we produce are a compilation of many intentions, things we love, layered through our winemaking experiences each year that we learn from.
As we continue to take shape and progress, we celebrate being able to share our vision through each new vintage release of our wines.
