2019 Scintilla Les Petits Riens
Post 2018 harvest, James was offered a 1 acre in size vinyard to nurture in Basket Range by his mate Gareth Belton (Gentle folk). The vinyard was not accessible by tractor so James nurtured this vineyard with a 2 stroke backpack sprayer and a brush cutter.
Over 21 varieties are co planted with 5 clones of Chenin Blanc and 3 clones of Viognier being the most dominant. To add to that there is Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Savagnin, Verdelho, Arneis, Pinot Gris, Aramon Noir (rose variety indigenous to the Languedoc) Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo...and there's about 4 more.
Where: Basket Range, Adelaide Hills
What: 21 Variety Field Blend
