All of the vineyard blocks grown on the hilly ranges of McLaren Vale, are hand harvested, farmed biodynamically, and bottled with minimal sulfites.
Jauma is a founding member of the Natural Wine Theory, a revolutionary group formed a few years ago that has turned perceptions of Australian wine upside down. Committed to sustainable viticulture grounded in organic and biodynamic principles, Jauma and the rest of this motley crew are crafting wines with incredible vitality, sex appeal and dangerous drinkability.
This is a carbonic styled wine, that is fermented in a closed vessel on its bunches. It’s bright, light in appearance and flirtatious with wafts of raspberries, plums and anise. It’s crunchy, almost rose-like but with a powerful finish coming through from the ironstone Grenache which goes into their single site Grenache expressions; So good!
