Sons of Eden Pumpa Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
90% cabernet sauvignon 20-30yo vines, 10% shiraz. Named in tribute to Len Pumpa and his fellow Eden Valley wine-growing pioneers, Pumpa is one evocative wine, capturing the scent of the Australian bush - saltbush, briar, eucalypt and sage - and generous warmth of ripe Australian cabernet. It's a plush wine, ripe tannins, length and ageability assured. Offers excellent value.
