Vineyard blocks were individually hand-harvested, destemmed and fermented in small 1 and 2 tonne open-fermenters. A combination of hand plunging and pumping-over cap management techniques were employed throughout the fermentation period. A short post ferment skin-maceration occurred for 5 days before being pressed off and matured in a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads. Matured on press-lees for 12 months prior to being assembled, naturally clarified and bottled without finings or filtration.

The PUMPA is a blend of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. 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 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 with the vineyard resources we are custodians of today.

James Suckling (Nick Stock reviewer)

Striking black-fruit aromas, such as cherry and currant, on the nose here, as well as dark-stony elements, such as graphite. Dark herbs, too. The palate has a clever mix of power and smooth-honed tannins that are really ripe. Oak kicks up spice on the finish. Drink or hold. Nick Stock, Oct 2021
