James Erskine has been one of the most influential voices in the Australian natural wine movement for more than two decades. An award-winning-sommelier turned world-renowned winemaker, James founded Jauma in 2010 with an eye to crafting honest, thought-provoking wines made purely from nothing but grapes.
In the world of Jauma, nothing is added and nothing is taken away during the winemaking process. The transparency and translation of the vineyard into the glass are the ultimate aims.
Erskine's meticulous approach and unyielding standards have produced some of the most talked-about wines of his generation. They are startlingly pure and have an ephemeral energy about them. They often sell out in the blink of an eye. They are everything that is magical and magnetic about the world of natural wine.
