Jauma - 2019 Blewitt Springs Chenin
"Grown by Lulu. The slope faces east and is deep, white sand on orange clay. Both Fiona and Dave consult Lulu on this block. There's some skin contact in this wine. Juicy with slatey acidity." – James Erskine, Jauma
The fruit for all Jauma wines is farmed organically by Fiona Wood and Dave Gartelman. Grapes are hand-picked, vinified naturally and bottled without any additions. These are living wines – home to healthy bacteria and yeast from remaining sugars, tannins and acids, which are metabolised for energy and release gas in doing so – so expect a tickle of fizz (sometimes). But, as the wine warms up the gasses leave and the aromas will further unfurl.
