The Gumpara Vineyard situated in the Light Pass district of the Barossa Valley has been cared for by the Mader family for 7 generations. Sourced from a special selected low yielding single vineyard, these own rooted Shiriaz vines are grown in rich red clay; pink marble and ironstone on limestone base. Pruning techniques and trellis systems have been modified to spread the fruit zone evenly, providing greater balance to each vine.

From a special selected low yielding single vineyard, these own rooted Shiriaz vines are grown in rich red clay, pink marble and ironstone on limestone base. Pruning techniques and trellis systems have been modified to spread the fruit zone evenly, providing greater balance to each vine.
Crushed and de-stemmed into open fermenters, with fermentation controlled at 25C. This developing wine is pumped over twice each day. Free run is removed from skins and the must is gently pressed via an airbag batch press. Fermentation was completed in new French oak barrels prior to malolactic conversion and ageing.(pressings only)
18 months in new Leroi-Valley French oak hogsheads. 6 months in two year old French oak.
Record yield reductions arising from consecutive years of below average winter ans spring rainfall with a hot dry early summer, lead to this stunning quality vintage. Maximum and minimum temperatures in February eased dramatically allowing time for generous varietal fruit development.
Colour – Deep purple with Burgundy hue
Bouquet – intense, fresh medly of red and black berry fruits. Cradled flawlessly with subtle French oak.
Palate – The palate displays fresh Shiraz intensity, alongside of white pepper, raspberry and supported with balanced oak and silky tannins
Drink now, or benefit by careful cellaring well into the next decade and beyond.
