2019 Scintilla 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.
Where: Maslin Beach, Mclaren Vale
