This is our first vintage dated sparkling wine, and we knew it when we made the base wine in 2015. Scintilla is a brut sparkling wine made in the traditional method. It shows a rich golden color and has a brilliant reflection with small elegant bubbles. The aroma and flavors are extremely fresh and crisp, reminiscent of acidic fruits such as lemon, green apple and pear, accented by a touch of yeast and toasted brioche. The finish is clean, long and showing beautiful acidity which is heightened by creamy overtones.
It has been awarded a Gold Medal in the Virginia Governor's Cup two years in a row.
