Jauma - 2020 Tikka the Cosmic Cat
Grenache from the sandy soils of Lilies in McLaren Flat. Shiraz from the silty soils of 28 Rd McLaren Vale, carbonically macerated for light, bright, aromatic tones. Dry-grown Shiraz from Ralph Wood in Clarendon, de-stemmed for suppleness and dark fruit notes. Together, what do they make? A bloody good wine, that's what.
The fruit for all Jauma wines is farmed organically, and grapes are always 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.
