Tikka, James's old winery cat, reincarnated as a dark, yet incredibly light and racy Shiraz Grenache blend.
Ordinarily you'd think of a Shiraz and Grenache blend for being big and jammy, but not here.
85% Carbonic-maceration Shiraz and 15% Grenache, this one is bold and bright, and with an acidity that is quite profound (if not a little confusing or conflicting!) We've never seen anything like it. Bright, spicy, plummy. Insanely good!
Jauma ("Yaow-ma") are some of the earliest natural wines known to Australia and some of the first natural wines to ever make it to New Zealand. Winemaker James Erskine is based in South Australia where he and organic viticultural specialist Fiona Wood farm several vineyards together, often with a focus on old-vine, dry-grown bush vines. All of James's wines are organic, wild fermented, unadjusted, unfiltered, unfined (vegan) and with no added sulphites.
