Philosophy

Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Wines

All Gumpara wines are sourced from our family owned, 6th generation single vineyard at Light Pass, South Australia. Not only are they single vineyard wines, they tend to be selected from precise sections of the vineyard where the fruit is of the highest possible quality.

Traditional Varieties

The traditional varieties of Shiraz and Semillon play an important part in our wine making. Fruit generosity and careful oak selection and maturation is the main focus on our Shiraz, whereas, varietal expression and the ability to age and develop in the bottle are the attributes sought in our Semillon.

Alternative Varieties

Gumpara also offers the consumer a choice, the Italian variety, ‘Vermentino’. The emphasis here, is to produce a flavoursome, aromatic, clean, crisp wine that is easily approachable. Ideal for our hot Australian summers.

Fortified Wines

To complete the Gumpara stable, we also have a selection of fortified wines.  Without the luxury of beginning with old based wines, I set upon making my own fortified bases in the late 1990’s, for what is now a trio of fortified wines. Using only the highest quality fruit, careful diligent wine making practices and the selection of the best fortifying spirit, this gives the consumer a choice of  three rare and truly unique Australian fortified wines.

Our Aim

Heres to fine wines & tight lines!

 

Our aim is to produce high quality wines that display and reflect the character of the winemaker and of the land from which our vines are grown. To leave you wanting for nothing more, than perhaps landing a nice fish every now and then.
