d'Arenberg The Stump Jump Shiraz 2015
The aromas and flavours present as a mix of dark and red fruits - plums, mulberries, blackberries and raspberries. Add to this a healthy dose of rich liquorice and slightly earthy notes, along with a subtle lick of vanilla and baking spice.
The mouthfeel is creamy and succulent with just enough tannin to prop the wine up, presenting long and fresh, effortlessly avoiding falling over short of the mark.
What a complex and complete wine for the price point, delivering upon release with an expectation to drink well over the next 2 to 5 years.
SOLD OUT - d'Arenberg The Stump Jump Shiraz 2017 vintage is now available here.
The grapes used in this wine are mostly from very old bush vines, and underwent gentle crushing, traditional open tank fermentation, basket pressing and oak maturation prior to bottling.
A wet winter ensured good sub soil moisture and set up the vines well with healthy canopies. Spring was very dry with above average temperatures, a heavy downpour in January was a welcome relief. Mild conditions during the ripening period produced wines that show an abundance of spicy fruits with great colour, richness and balanced tannins. Vintage started on 30 January, the earliest start on record by one day.
Pound for pound one of the best value Australian Shiraz you'll encounter. The Stump Jump Shiraz always punches well above its weight and the 2015 vintage is no exception. Winery Notes
