The Oddbins Take

Ever wonder what it was like to drink wine from the olden days? (You don't hear a lot of 'olden days' after the age of 7, maybe because it's not particularly specific, anyway we're bringing it back.) We're talking like Mesopotamia not the 60s. You may well think it would be gross; they didn't understand yeast strains and weren't able to tweet pictures of their ferment to Mesopotamian Oz Clarke. Well, have a sip of this outstanding Grenache from Mclaren Vale and you may find yourself less of a present snob... modern centric... pastist? Jauma harvest by hand, use no sulphites, additives, enzymes, ferment with natural yeasts and the entire operation is gravity fed instead of pumps, just like your Mesopotamian ancestor use to make it!


Of course, they might use totally natural practices, but head winemaker James Erskine also utilizes a serious amount of modern 'know-how' to create a wine with highly perfumed bouquet evokes smoky raspberry, mulberry, candied rose and spice-cake. Seamless and sweet, with energetic red berry compote flavours and an exotic floral pastille quality. Gains richness and spiciness with air and finishes very long, with clinging sweetness. A beautiful fusion of the past and the future, to be enjoyed in the present.
