Das Juice is a partnership between long time friends and business partners, Tom Sheer and James Audas. The two run LO-FI Imports, a wine importing company that sources rare and unique natural wines from across the globe.
Recognising that there is a need for more affordable wines made with that same ethos (i.e. sustainably farmed and made with minimal intervention), the boys set up Das Juice to fill the gap.
Their skin-contact white wine (or amber wine) is made mostly from Muscat and Arneis, with a small amount of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay thrown in for added freshness. All fruit is sourced from different regions in South Australia
After spending the first couple weeks of its life fermenting on skins, it was bottled unfined and unfiltered, revealing a golden, sunny, richly-flavoured orange wine that is dangerously easy to knock back.
