2017 Jauma Xpectations
By James Erskine and Fiona Wood.
Blanc de Noir of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (yep, you read right!) from the Birdsey Vineyard in Seaview, South Australia. I have never come across anything like it, this wine is rich, textural and brimming with freshness!
We have been working with these two rows of Cabernet on the Birdsey Vineyard in Seaview for eight years now. Finally we have found an expression which makes these delicious grapes shine. Whole bunch pressed to barrel on full lees gives a wine that stands proud, bright and pure.
No added sulphites.
NB: All of James' wines, still or sparkling, are bottled under crown seal.
