Sons of Eden Pumpa 2014
2014 PUMPA Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz
Bright cassis and red cherry aromas surround a bouquet of coffeebean and black olives. A velvety textured palate with great length of flavour and roundness. The dash of Tempranillo contributes subtle savoury nuance to the finish of the palate, approachable now but will reward further cellaring.
Winemaking - All parcels were individually hand harvested at optimal ripeness, destemmed and fermented in small 1 and 2 tonne fermenters. A mixture of hand plunging and pumping over cap management techniques were employed throughout the fermentation. Extended skin maceration occurred for up to 10 days on all varieties post dryness before being pressed off and matured separately 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.
