2020 Jauma Tikka the Cosmic Cat Shiraz Grenache
James Erskine is one of Australia's original zero zero winemakers. For over ten years now he has crafted amazing wines from McLaren Vale and its surrounds. 2020 is no different.
This is a blend of three parts. Grenache from the sandy soils of McLaren Flat. Shiraz from the silty soils of McLaren Vale, carbonically macerated for light, bright, aromatic tones. And fuller dry grown Shiraz from Clarendon, de-stemmed for suppleness & dark fruit notes.
A little more serious than some of his wines, but still eminently smashable.
