$10 for six wines
fee waived with $100 purchase
Earlier this year, James and Anton tore through the Bay like a cyclone. like a Yeats poem. like an acid trip. Now that everyone has just barely recovered, their new wines have arrived. They are more psychedelic than ever, pushing the envelope of Oceanic wine like a grom pushing into a slab at Shipsterns. Sorry for all the similes. These wines are hard to describe. See below for the lineup, with notes from James and Anton.
Lucy M Frizzante $33
100% pinot noir picked early, pressed in open fermentors. It is not disgorged.
Lucy M Wildman Blanc $37
Whole bunch sauvignon blanc stood on occasionally and left to sit for 6 weeks. Pressed into ceramic eggs to age.
Lucy M Catastrophe Pinot Blend $33
This wine is an assemblage in homage to my cellar hand Christof, a cheesemaker from the Jura. It’s a blend of Pinot, some Merlot, and some Chardonnay that developed a bit of flor.
Jauma Pet Nat $36
We’ve been working on our Pet Nat since 2013, now it’s time to unleash our light and pretty Grenache bubbles. Imagine all the aromatics of Mclaren Vale Grenache squeezed into a water bomb exploding in your face…Boom. Yep, she’s fun.
Jauma Chenin $41
Originally planted for white port-style wines, this is a little drop of historical gold in the McLaren Vale. These vines were planted in the 1940s, vines in white beach sand interspersed with schist and quartz..
Jauma Cabernet Franc $41
The red sandy soil on the Seaview ridge overlooks McLaren Vale and the South Coast beaches. I’m finally coming to grips with the fact that McLaren Vale can produce amazing Cabernet Franc. Electric purple in the glass, this wine sings with powerful raciness, black berries and briary spice.
