Scintilla - 2019 More Than White Pinot Grigio
"Small tight bunches of pristine Grigio were perfect for long maceration. Three 7 year old french oak hogshead barrel heads were removed. Then loaded with some whole bunch and some de-stemmed fruit. The heads were put back in and the barrels were laid down for fermentation. The barrels are rolled daily to homogenise the ferment and once primary was finished they were gradually topped with some direct press juice. 6 months passed and they were opened and gently pressed and returned to barrel for a further 6 months. This wine evolves, loves to be open over a few days. Tannins are especially cool. Bottled just before picking the same fruit in 2020.
All wines are produced from vines grown and managed with organic and/or biodynamic principles. All the grapes are carefully hand picked then processed with a shovel and a fork. A lot of beer is consumed in this process and of course the beer is local and crisp. All wines are bottled at the shed, I mean estate. All under TCA checked natural cork. I do not fine or filter. No additions whatsoever; apart from love, work and luck. 80 cases made" – James, Scintilla
