Sons Of Eden Sons of Eden Pumpa Cabernet Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Tempranillo Eden Valley South Australia
A unique but decidedly Aussie cépage of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, fortified by the inclusion of Barossa Tempranillo. Len Pumpa was a grower of Prussian descent, he persevered throughout the lean years of Australian viticulture, at a time when table wines were unfashionable and grape growing was an unviable labour of love. The wonderful endowment of grand old vineyards now managed by Sons of Eden, are due in large part to the selfless toil of Pumpa and his devotion to the vine.

A collation of hand harvested fruit, picked at complete physiological ripeness, the Shiraz off vines over fifty years of age, grown to splendid sites at Moculta and various altitudes on Valley Eden, a component of Tempranillo from Light Pass in Barossa contributes backbone and complexity. Bunches are destemmed into small one and two tonnes fermenters, treated to a regimen of hand plunging and pumpovers. Vinified to dryness and treated to several days maceration, batches are pressed off into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads, for fifteen months maturation and the final assemblage, clarified through rackings and bottled without fining or filtration.
Bright scarlet colour. Lifted red cherry nose, pepper and plums, strawberries, leather and spicy cassis notes. A soft velvety palate, textural, layered with great length of flavour, black fruits and morello cherries are seasoned by tomato leaf savouryness, supported by fine, pliant tannins and framed by a trim of warming, spicebox oak.
