2022 Scintilla Noontide Sauvignon Blanc13210
WINEMAKER: James Madden
REGION: Adelaide Hills, SA
VARIETAL: Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc loves a little time on skins - for structure, for depth, for intrigue. Interestingly made, a parcel of carbonically macerated Sauvignon making for intense yellow fruits notes, meadowsweet. Then a second parcel that’s destemmed and whole bunch, 50/50, macerated for two weeks. If you need plenty of nice acidity, aromatics, excitement, this is the wine for you.
