The name ‘Stump Jump’ doesn’t relate to the English game of cricket (jumping over the stumps at the end of the game), nor the breeding of livestock held in the stumps but relates to the significant South Australian invention – the Stump Jump plough. The plough soon became a worldwide implement for ploughing fields because of its ability to ride over stumps and gnarled “mallee” Eucalypt roots and snags, saving valuable time and energy by not stopping the draught horse.

This optometrist eye chart inspired design doubles as a make shift sobriety test. If you hold the bottle at arm’s length and you can still read the bottom line you can have another glass. (This statement is of humorous nature and not to be considered a test of blood alcohol for the purpose of driving a vehicle, working machinery or constructing flat pack furniture.)

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, then matured in large casks prior to estate bottling.

The nose is full of ripe and juicy red fruits and fresh plums mixed with dark cherry, rhubarb and cardamon. 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. The soft powdery tannins provide a gentle finish.
