Straight up dry fizzy fruit salad eaten picnic style on the beach. That’s the immediate impression but parsing that out it goes something like this. 100% Chenin Blanc grown by James’ friend Lulu on clay soils covered in sand broken down from once volcanic stone. It’s sharp as a knife and as marine as the beach it's offset from, but with plenty of high toned Chenin fruit that borders on pineapples, lemon lime, and marzipan. -Matt

Their first vintage was in 2010. All of the vineyards are managed by Fiona Wood and all of their wines are made without the addition of yeasts, acids, polymers, enzynes, tannins or flitration. All of the vineyard blocks grown on the hilly ranges of McLaren Vale, are hand harvested, farmed biodynamically, and bottled with minimal sulfites.
Jauma is a founding member of the Natural Wine Theory, a revolutionary group formed but a few years ago that has turned perceptions of Australian wine-and for that matter, New World wine-upside down. Committed to sustainable viticulture grounded in organic and biodynamic principles, Jauma and the rest of this motley crew are crafting wines with incredible vitality, sex appeal and dangerous drinkability. These wines reflect place, soul, funk, passion and this it be declared, a new zeitgeist!
