Scar of the Sea - Rosé, Topotero Vineyard San Luis Obispo County 2021
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 the opportunity for them 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 their 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.
This is a rosé from the single vineyard Topotero, located just one mile from the Pacific Ocean and in the first year of conversion to certified biodynamic farming. The Pinot Noir and Gamay were hand-picked, foot-tread, and whole bunch pressed separately, then fermented with native yeast in old French oak barrels. The wine was aged on lees for eight months, then racked and blended before bottling. Unfined/unfiltered, bottled with minimal SO2.
