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.
Parcels of fruit are selected from our vineyards in the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. Once they have been gently crushed, the grapes are basket pressed to softly extract the juice from the skins. 60% of the juice is partially or fully fermented in a mixture of older French and American oak to add a touch of spice and mouth feel.
Once fermentation is complete the winemakers taste all batches to determine which will suit this gentle and fruity style of Chardonnay.
Wonderfully aromatic with white peaches and honeydew melon dominating the nose with a lovely dose of green apple freshness and a touch of spicy oak in the background.
Nectarines join the party on the palate with limy acidity and a lovely custard like mouth feel. The oak is very subtle and provides the texture and a touch of supportive spice.
Whether drinking on its own or with a fresh plate of seafood, salad or chicken you can’t go past this little gem.
