2019 Scintilla Pinot Noir Magnum
We’ve been following Scintilla’s James Madden since his days as Little Things. The ex-chef has been making wine in the Basket Range ever since a chance meeting with Anton Von Klopper, Tom Shobbrook and James Erskine blew his mind. (Don’t worry, buddy. We’ve all been there.)
He left his hometown, headed straight over to the hills and began making pure, unadulterated natural wine. His wine always have a light touch and a certain brightness. This Pinot Noir is extremely light, a little cloudy and full of clean, crisp acidity. It drinks a lot like a rosé even though it doesn’t look it and is definitely worth chilling.
