THE STUMP JUMP, MCLAREN VALE SHIRAZ
d’Arenberg, The Stump Jump Shiraz McLaren Vale
TASTING NOTES: A beautifully fragrant, restrained yet balanced expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz. The nose is bursting with raspberry, strawberry, mulberry and spice. The palate is juicy and silken. Pure fruit, fresh acid and super supple tannins all in harmony. This wine, from a lighter, spicier year, presents as immediately drinkable and should be enjoyed in the first 3 to 4 years of its life to take advantage of its youthful charm and fresh fruit character.
BACKGROUND: The name ‘Stump Jump’ relates to the significant South Australian invention – the Stump Jump plough. This plough became a popular piece of machinery for ploughing fields because of its ability to ride over stumps and gnarled “mallee” Eucalypt roots and snags, saving valuable time and resources by not stopping the draught horse.
