D Arenberg the Stump Jump Red 2009
Editorial Reviews for D Arenberg the Stump Jump Red
Very pretty on the nose, peppery and ripe with smoke, dried meat and vanilla accents. This is rich but very well balanced in the mouth, showing fine blackberry, tinged with hints of game, black currant and fried bacon. The tannins are very soft lending this an easy drinking quality and the rich fruit pops on the back end before fading gently on the dry, austerely refreshing finish. This wants a steak. Very nicely done. 87 pts
Spicy on the nose with a bit of black spice and pepper over slightly roasted fruits and a hint of BO funk. This is fairly complex in the mouth, showing very well integrated wood tones, lightly jammy wild black fruits, and a nice spice note. Though the flavors turn a little roasted in the glass it's firmly medium bodied with good depth of flavor, and fine acids and soft tannins making it easy to drink and surprisingly food friendly. Air brings out more red fruit in the glass, and adds an appealing smoothness. Really a very nice glass of wine and the perfect thing for a backyard BBQ. 88pts
Stemmy and perfumy on the nose with soil tones, green fennel and cardamom seeds, a touch of volatility, and some plummy sweetness. Has a leading edge of woody sweetness that then turns to a rather broad pool of sweet peach toned strawberry and cherry fruit with some dry austere tannins adding cut and refreshing the very strawberry fruited finish. This is a bit loose, with nice fruit flavors in an easy drinking style that finishes a bit short and dry though with nice persistence to the licorice and strawberry fruit 84pts
Figs and nuts in the aroma, toasted almonds. A little bit of dry grass. The mouth is pointed and acidic, with a nice red fruit tartness on the finish, which is also quite a bit peppery.
Always really enjoyable every time and of a great value.
Nice Rhone style blend; great price.
I didn't get it. I'm not a big grenache fan, but even so, this felt like drinking unsweetened cranberry juice. Ick.
The 2008 apparently was on Spectator's Top 100. I tried the 2009, it was like a fruitier Cotes du Rhone in this price range. Can taste the raspberry flavors of Grenache and the touch of pepper and sweetness on the finish from the Shiraz. It could be just me, but I am noticing a trend with 2009 Australian reds that they improve over the course of a couple of days. Pleasant & average, I would give it about 86 / 100.
Bold fruity favors. Very easy to drink on its own or paired very well with Camembert cheese!
I really love wines from McLaren Vale. But, I have mostly had straight Shiraz. This Rhone style blend is really very interesting it has got all that mulberry and plum flavours from the Grenache combined with the blackberry, spice and white pepper of the Shiraz. Really good.
External Reviews for D Arenberg the Stump Jump Red
This Grenache-dominant blend opens with a less-than-pleasant scent of paint thinner hiding behind more usual tones of spiced plums and candied cherries. Thereandrsquo;s nice raspberry fruit on the finish, buoyed by a sharp whack of acidity. Drink now.
The stump-jump plow, a South Australian invention designed to plow the areaandrsquo;s notoriously resistant roots, lends its name to dandrsquo;Arenbergandrsquo;s value-level brand. When winemaker Chester Osborn gets it right, this red, designed for early consumption, can transcend the category. Itandrsquo;s a GSM in all but name, a blend of 42 percent Grenache with the remainder a mix of Shiraz and Mourvandeacute;dre, sourced from purchased fruit in addition to dandrsquo;Arenbergandrsquo;s own vineyards.
