2021 'Audrey’s Fairygarten' Shiraz
The Shiraz is always a fun wine from Jauma. This year it comes a little more macerated, with lots of Davison plum, dark cherry and sloe berry. Lots of pretty lifted florals that make it feel like a candy shop too. Slurp.
James Erskine and his partner Sophie are Jauma. It has been a huge year for the winery that is widely accepted to be one of the first, true representatives of Australia’s natural wine movement. Not only are they still working with organic fruit from the Mclaren Vale, but they have planted their home plot amidst their blossoming cherry orchard, and have moved their winery home after 11 years of tireless work outside. They are incredible members of the community, hosting yoga retreats at their place, implementing pay it forward programs that donate part of their revenue to community orgs and putting on amazing markets and festivals for people in the community. They are real-deal, give-it-back kinda people who also happen to make incredible wine. No adds, ever.
