93 PTS THE WINE FRONT

The KENNEDY is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron's who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards,which the Barossa enjoys today. The Grenache fruit is the 'soul' of this blend and is from an exceptionally low yielding 50+ year-old Light Pass vineyard. Originally planted by the Kennedy Family, with ownership eventually being passed onto the charismatic Leo 'Joe' KENNEDY who nurtured the vines for many years, selling his prized fruit to local winemakers.

Tasting notes:

Deep crimson in colour this wine is bursting with aromas of ripe cherry and plum backed with an array of sweet spice and licorice notes. Complex ripe red fruit characters amid a fleshy mid-palate core of wild berries and spice create enduring layers of flavour. Soft and velvety tannins persist the length of the palate that finished with some savoury nuances.

Name:

Pumpa

Vintage:

2013 EDEN VALLEY

Variety:

Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz

Background:

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.

Deep Garnet in colour this wine bounces out of the glass with ripe red and blueberry compote aromas, underpinned by dark chocolate and spiced clove complexities.
