    2023 Jauma '1000 Fires' Chenin Blanc

    • Sold out
    • $38.00

    A textural triumph, this is a blend of organically grown Chenin Blanc (90%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%). The Chenin fruit is from Lulu Lutz’s vineyard in Blewitt Springs, a site rich in white sands over clay and schist. These east-facing vines have been managed organically for eight of their 16 years. The Sauvignon fruit is from an elevated site (380 metres) in Peter’s Creek, McLaren Vale. The 21-year-old vines face north and stand in clay, quartz and ironstone. The Chenin fruit is destemmed and sits on skins for one day before pressing to a mix of steel and old wood vessels for fermentation. The Sauvignon component spent longer on skins (two weeks) before it was pressed to old French puncheons. Each wine spent 11 months on lees before release.
