Scintilla - 2019 Grenache
"Grenache grown a stones throw from Maslin Beach. Grown on super sandy light free draining soils, with cooling afternoon winds from the Indian Ocean. All the fruit was de-stemmed and open top fermented. Daily gentle depressing of the cap was all that was done to ensure gentle extraction. Pressed early to minimise colour and tannin and capture the crazily bountiful aromatics. Quiet time spent in 7 year old french oak barriques. Bottled mid spring.
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. 45 cases produced" – James, Scintilla
