2021 Scar of the Sea Hofer Vineyard Grenache
All wines stored at 55° and 70% humidity
Hofer Ranch is an oasis wedged between the Ontario Airport and a sea of Industrial buildings. The vineyard was planted in the 1930’s on its own roots in the sandy soils of Cucamonga Valley. The vines are head trained and have been farmed using organic practices from the beginning.
This wine is made with a nod to how wines have been made in this region for decades. The grapes were harvested in early August and then fermented in an old redwood tank with 50% whole cluster. The wine was aged in old french oak barrels for 7 months before being bottled with minimal sulfur and without filtration.
