2020 Jauma 'Why Try So Hard?' 750mL w/ EW reusable bottle


2020 Why Try So Hard? is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Muscat à Petit Grains and a tiny wee splash of carbonic-macerated Grenache! Juicy orchard fruit, some very fine, chalky texture from the skinsy bits, a saline acidity and a lively, spicy mid-palate. I guess a bit like Patrick Sullivan's Breakfast Wine it's unusual but universally delicious... Not a far reach for anyone familiar with Jauma really!

And as always with Jauma: organic, wild fermented, unfiltered, unfined and made with no additions whatsoever.

Everyday Wine has a tiny allocation of 2 kegs only! Run, don’t walk!

We are now offering our packaging-free natural wines for online delivery.

We work closely with wineries up and down the country to bring you organic, natural wines straight from the winery to our store, and offer them to you on tap, packaging free. 

We fill to order, and fill into sturdy, heavy-duty 750ml swing top bottles that you can later reuse. The wines are held under nitrogen and the bottles are pre-gassed before filling to prevent oxidation. We suggest opening the wine within 2-3 weeks of purchasing it and consuming the wine within 1-2 days of opening. 

Once you've finished with the bottle pop back to either one of our stores (442 K' Road, Auckland or 177 Cuba Street, Wellington) for a refill, or use the bottles for other drinks, ferments, sauces, etc!
