5 in stock
This wine is a blend of three grape varieties: Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre (pronounced Morvedruh). It has aromas of ripe juicy red fruit mixed with notes of dark cherry, Christmas pudding and white pepper corns. There are flavours of rich concentrated dark fruits with notes of liquorice and a smooth finish. The nose is full of ripe and juicy red fruits and fresh plums mixed with dark cherry rhubarb and cardamom. The palate is approachable with juicy fresh red berries mulberry and a hint of pomegranate. Underlying the generous fruit is a more subtle layer of plum stone star anise and cinnamon which adds complexity and interest. This wine is the combination of many individual parcels of wines that flowed down from senior wines in the d’Arenberg stable. It also includes parcels from a range of new growers. Red winemaking at d’Arenberg is very traditional and simplistic. All of the reds wines are fermented in headed-down open fermenters prior to being pressed in our traditional basket-presses. Matured in large casks prior to estate bottling. The name ‘Stump Jump’ pays homage to a significant South Australian invention – the Stump Jump plough. As well as clearing the land around the McLaren Vale, it was adopted because of its ability to ride over stumps and gnarled roots, saving valuable time and energy. The Stump Jump is a fun and engaging range of wines that make a perfect introduction to d’Arenberg. Great value and distinctive, they’re the perfect addition to any wine list.
