Scar of the Sea 2022 Pinot Noir, Bassi Vineyard, SLO Coast
The 2022 Bassi Vineyard Pinot Noir is produced from 23 year old Dijon Clone vines at the Bassi Vineyard, located on the hillsides of Avila Valley, 1 mile from Avila Beach. The vineyard is farmed by Ben Taylor with organic farming practices and it is in its 2nd year of transition to biodynamic certification. This bottling is a unique snapshot of coastal California, some of the closest vines to the Pacific Ocean in California. The fruit was fermented with native yeast and 70% whole-cluster. The wine was pressed once dry in our wooden basket press then aged for 10 months in neutral french oak barrels.
Think candied strawberry, citrus peel, maraschino cherries, and worn leather
