Stump Jump Shiraz

d'Arenberg Stump Jump Shiraz

Stump Jump Shiraz – a staple from the iconic d’Arenberg Winery.

It is rumoured that the inventor of the Stump Jump plough, which enabled a ploughshare to jump over tree roots, had poor eyesight and required regular tests to ensure he could still operate machinery. The design of this label is inspired by an optometrist’s eyechart and serves as a makeshift sobriety test. If you can hold the bottle at arm’s length and still read the front label, you can enjoy another glass.

This is a very approachable and fun wine. The lifted nose is a cacophony of aromatic intrigue. Lifted red fruits are chased down by dark berry aromatics which then yield to typical baking spice and cracked pepper characters shared by all good McLaren Vale Shiraz. It’s almost like a race to the finish for these competing characters all vying for the lead role. Yet they also support and complement one another. It is on the palate that the value of this wine can be truly appreciated though. Generous fruit weight supports a fine tannin profile characteristics that would make this wine sit proudly amongst those many times its price. Black olive skin, earthy notes, and a subtle touch of graphite and iron round out the full palate. This wine has a welcome plushness to it, yet sits lightly on the tongue, its tannin and long acid line giving it a lively and playful feel. Have fun enjoying this wine. That’s what it is asking you to do.

Fresh and juicy, ripe red fruits mix with plums, blackcurrant, flowers and a twist of black pepper. The tannins are fine with their trademark earthiness helping keep this easy going Stump Jump Shiraz in check.

Soldiers Block Shiraz

Soldiers Block Shiraz – Delicate red fruit and herbal aromas open up to a palate of ripe mulberry and plum fruit. the fine grained tannin and vanilla from the oak, work in balance to deliver a wine of poise and elegance.

Soldiers Block Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypt flavours and saline finish associated with the area. Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 – 25ºC to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged. The winemaker also added 5% Malbec at the end of the whole process – a sneaky technique that gives a mulberry fruit twist on the finish.

Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume. This vintage is our brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date due to its fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.

Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses

WINEMAKER COMMENTS Summer was dry and warm leading up to Christmas, resulting in a vintage that was two weeks earlier than average. These conditions meant that the vines were able to ripen the grapes seamlessly, producing an abundance of flavour. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation, and also 3 – 5 days post fermentation has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build solid wine structure.
TASTING NOTES Deep crimson purple in colour, this wine shows intense youthful aromas of dark, ripe cherries, Christmas pudding, Indian spice and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and ripe and embodies a classic South Australian Shiraz, with layers of ripe blackberries and Christmas cake, surrounded by soft, juicy, ripe tannins.
This wine drinks perfectly with whole roast suckling pig; or shallot pancakes with black vinegar dipping sauce.
