Ironstone is a rusty colored laterite granite stone with a high iron content which can be found in vineyards. The higher iron content adds a wonderful mineral freshness to this deep-colored wine. On the nose we have a few violet notes as well as blackberry, raspberry and a little allspice. A complex and layered wine, with fine-grained chalky and mineral tannins and ripe sweet red and black berries which are balanced by provincial herbs.

I was lured in to buying this wine as the label stated it was on the Wine Spectator's best value list for 2010. They also rated it at 90pts. I liked the strong aroma of red berries - initial taste was pleasant - plum, berries with a slight trace of oak that lingers for awhile.

The Stump Jump GSM 2008 - d'Arenberg : The Stump Jump GSM 2008 - Rotwein von d'ArenbergThe Stump Jump - Blocksprung. Die Marke war bei der Côtes du Rhône Village gesetzt und sollte überboten werden. Mit etwas mehr Fruchtsüße und Konzentration entstand ein original d'Arenberg mit einem unschlagbaren Preis.Der Stump Jump GSM 2008 leuchtet purpurrot und erfreut die Nase mit würzigen, aber nicht überladenen Aromen, die wunderbar mit fruchtigen Noten von Brombeeremarmelade und reifen dunklen Beeren harmonieren.Am Gaumen leicht süßlich, kehren die Brombeeren wieder und in der Mitte vom Gaumen spürt man Aromen von Pflaumen, Maulbeeren, süßen und reifen Beeren, Weihnachtsgewürzen und Pfeffer. Zum Ende hin präsentieren sich leichte Vanilletöne. Während man Lakritz oder doch eher fleischige Aromen zu erkennen glaubt, rollt der Rotwein Richtung Finale. Der kräftige Körper wird durch die frische Säure aufgefangen und seine Tannine sind mürbe und kaum adstringierend. Der Stump Jump GSM 2008 ist ein sehr ausbalancierter Rotwein, der im Finale von fruchtigen Noten, wie Rumfrüchten, dominiert wird.Weingut: d'ArenbergLand: AustralienRegion: McLaren ValeRebsorte: 50% Grenache, 29% Shiraz, 21% MourvedreInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,75 g/lRestsüße: 0,75 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 3 - 5 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: Ausbau in Stahltanks und Teile in Barriques gereift (6 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Australien > McLaren Vale
