The Gumpara Vineyard situated in the Light Pass district of the Barossa Valley has been tended by the Mader family for seven generations.
High quality and consistent yields point towards 2021 being another classic vintage for the Barossa Valley. January and February rainfall events led to fresh canopies, while mild weather conditions throughout summer meant that fruit ripening was gradual, providing time for flavours to fully develop.

V I T I C U LT U R E
Made from 100% Barossa Valley Shiraz from over fifty year old dry grown vines. Each year, this single vineyard receives special attention. Traditional hand pruning methods are applied, the fruit is harvested at what is considered to be optimal ripeness and flavour in accordance to terrior, soil type and micro climate.
Crushed and de-stemmed into open fermenters, with fermentation temperature controlled at 25° C. Must is pumped over twice each day. Free run is removed from skins and the pressings are gently pressed via airbag batch press, with free run and 10% pressings reblended prior to molactic fermentation.
24 months in French and American oak hogsheads.
Record yield reductions arising from consecutive years of below average winter and spring rainfall with a hot dry early summer, lead to this stunning quality vintage. Temperatures in February eased dramatically allowing time for generous varietal fruit development. Deep crimson red in colour this Shiraz offers rich blackcurrant and mulberry aromas and flavours, layered with chocolate, liquorice and pepper spice. The wine is balanced with cedar oak and lingering fine silky tannins.
Drink now or benefit from careful cellaring well into the next decade.
