D'arenberg The Stump Jump McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017
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.
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
