2021 Jauma Ralph's Shiraz11663
REGION: Clarendon, Adelaide Hills, SA
WINEMAKER: James Erskine
"Grey sand over ironstone. Ripe, delicious shiraz destemmed and left on skins for weeks to dial back any overt fruit, leaving you with a satiny mouthfeel and persistent flavour. Free run only in Barrel for 10 months."
James Erskine is an honours graduate in soil chemistry and celebrated sommelier. A leading light in organic farming and zero-adds wine. He also owns a certified organic cherry farm. How good.
