Jauma - 2019 Seaview Birdsey Vineyard Cabernet Franc
"Our nineth harvest from Peter Birdsey's franc vines he planted in 1997. The soil in this Seaview appellation block is red sand, the aspect is directly over the ocean with spectacular views. Wine is plump, plush and dark dark red." – 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. Chill; or don’t.
