Jauma - 2019 Ralphs Shiraz
"Own rooted Shiraz, dry grown on Wood vineyard's thin red loam over ironstone. There is so much power coming from the ironstone which gives incredible minerality to support the deep fruits of this beauty." – 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.
