About
It’s certainly pumped up with flavour... Ripe, generous style of red. Minimum of fuss. All-will-enjoy.

About the Wine

Pumpa is a fresh take on the famous Aussie Claret, and it's one of the best value examples of its kind on in the country.

It’s a Cab/Shiraz from the Eden Valley with a dash of young vine Barossa Tempranillo thrown in for good measure, and it's seriously delicious. The Temp adds an element of spice, but really, this wine is all about plush, powerful Cabernet and Shiraz fruit, built into a neat and balanced frame.

The 2015 is another excellent release of this always-popular wine. Full-bodied red lovers rejoice!

"It’s certainly pumped up with flavour. It’s a ball of sweet, ripe berries, black and red, blue and woodsmoke-infused. Clove notes, a clip of toast, a whisper of green herbs. Ripe, generous style of red. Minimum of fuss. All-will-enjoy." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

About

The PUMPA is a blend of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Tempranillo varieties. Named as a tribute to Len PUMPA and his fellow Eden Valley Vignerons who pioneered and persisted in one of Australia’s most challenging but rewarding viticultural regions.

Eden Valley had a mix of British and continental European settlers that tried their hand at grape-growing. When times were tough particularly in the 1920s many turned away from viticulture, however the Prussian settlers like Len PUMPA persisted in the face of difficulty, preserving the vineyard resources we are custodians of today.

Winemaking

All parcels were individually hand harvested, destemmed and fermented in small 1 and 2 tonne open top fermenters. A mixture of hand plunging and pumping over cap management techniques were employed throughout the fermentation. A long post ferment maceration occured for up to 15 days before being pressed off and matured in a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads. Matured on full yeast lees for 15 months prior to being blended, naturally clarified and bottled without finings or filtration.

Blend : Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Shiraz (43%), Tempranillo (1%)
ABV : 14.5%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2026
Bottle Size : 750ml
