Before jumping the fence, James Erskine had carved out a formidable career as a sommelier, one that took him all across the world. While at the peak of his career, he formed an experimental wine group called The Natural Selection, with Sam Hughes, Anton von Klopper and Tom Shobbrook. Jauma produced its first wines in 2010 from McLaren Vale Grenache fruit. Erskine’s philosophy is very much down a natural line, with manipulation and additions shunned, excepting the occasional dusting of sulphur.
