Name:

2017 Pumpa

Vintage:

2017 EDEN VALLEY

Variety:

Cabernet Sauvignon

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.
