Scar of the Sea Pinot Gris & Pinot Noir Coferment, Bassi Vineyard, SLO Coast, CA 2023

$ 40.00

Grown above the sandstone quarry at the Bassi Vineyard located in Avila Beach, this block has an ocean view. The Bassi Vineyard was planted in 1999 and has always been farmed using organic practices. This fermented wine is 55% Pinot Gris and 45% Pinot Noir. 

The Pinot Gris was fermented with 100% whole cluster and the Pinot Noir grapes were destemmed on top of the fermentation. The wine fermented with native yeast and then was gently pressed in the wooden basket press. 

The wine aged for 7 months in old french oak barrels then racked for the first time to bottle, without fining or filtration, with minimal sulfur used.

Think candied red fruit, crushed pomegranate, white pepper and dried herbs
