Originally formulated by John Charles Brown OBE in 1954 and crafted to this very day in the exact same manner, Brown Brothers flagship icon endures as one of the nation's most distinguished single vineyard wines. Mondeuse plantings were brought to Australia in the early 1900s by the legendary Francois de Castella of St Hubert fame, they have remained the most precious parcel of Brown Brothers heirloom vines since the 1920s. At Milawa, Mondeuse translates into an inky, deeply tannic wine, it forms synergies with the sweet fruit plumpness of Shiraz and statuesque elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon to coalesce into a rich, opulent style of eloquence and structure... The brown brothers most closely guarded secret»
Three British Army officers, in their capacity as agents of the East India Company, established one of Western Australia's first agricultural enterprises in 1836. Named after Captain Richmond Houghton, it was not until Thomas Yule's stewardship that vines were planted and the first vintage of Houghton wine flowed in 1859. Thomas Yule now sources fruit from the eminent Justin Vineyard in Frankland River, a dark ruby Shiraz of lifted liquorice and intense brambleberry, seasoned by piquant pepper notes and supported by showroom tannins.

Sons Of Eden Sons of Eden Pumpa Cabernet Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Tempranillo Eden Valley South Australia
A unique but decidedly Aussie cépage of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, fortified by the inclusion of Barossa Tempranillo. Len Pumpa was a grower of Prussian descent, he persevered throughout the lean years of Australian viticulture, at a time when table wines were unfashionable and grape growing was an unviable labour of love. The wonderful endowment of grand old vineyards now managed by Sons of Eden, are due in large part to the selfless toil of Pumpa and his devotion to the vine.

A collation of hand harvested fruit, picked at complete physiological ripeness, the Shiraz off vines over fifty years of age, grown to splendid sites at Moculta and various altitudes on Valley Eden, a component of Tempranillo from Light Pass in Barossa contributes backbone and complexity. Bunches are destemmed into small one and two tonnes fermenters, treated to a regimen of hand plunging and pumpovers. Vinified to dryness and treated to several days maceration, batches are pressed off into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads, for fifteen months maturation and the final assemblage, clarified through rackings and bottled without fining or filtration.
Bright scarlet colour. Lifted red cherry nose, pepper and plums, strawberries, leather and spicy cassis notes. A soft velvety palate, textural, layered with great length of flavour, black fruits and morello cherries are seasoned by tomato leaf savouryness, supported by fine, pliant tannins and framed by a trim of warming, spicebox oak.
