Imagine washing down slices of asian pear with dry Orangina aromatized with oregano. It’s subtle, citrusy and savory. A touch more reserved than the other two in this lineup and seems antithetical to its skin contact status. It has a wonderful light texture for a skin contact more in line with corpulent southern Italian whites which belie the grapes' racy Piedmont origin. Out of all the zero zero orange wines in the store this is easily in the top 3. -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!
