Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes used for this Stump Jump are from predominantly very old bush-vine Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre vines. Small parcels of grapes sourced from various vineyards in McLaren Vale were gently crushed, fermented in traditional open-tanks, basked pressed and matured prior to bottling. Grenache 46%, shiraz 34%, Mourvedre 20%

Faint and reticent at first, lots of alcohol but with sufficient strawberry, herb, white pepper, blue flower and a touch of metal notes to keep this moderately interesting. A bit sweet right up front but with lots of acid keeping this lighter bodied balanced and really fresh with estery fruitiness, red fruits, strawberry/raspberry/grape, herbal top notes, touch of earth, underbrush and vanilla on the finish. A bit hot but still easy to drink, very fruity finish but hot 86pts

At first, I thought it was awful. Then it wasn't so bad. It was fruity on the nose, but then rather bland with tannins predominant with a "hot" acidic, alcoholic finish. Probably better with food but I was drinking it on it's own.

On the nose a little baby poop & talcum powder mix, not in a bad way though. Peppery, heat, cherry, jam, casis.

Strong velvety chocolate, with orange and pineapple. A little too much citrus for me, but otherwise well composed. Pretty killer deal at $6.

Probably the least standout-ish of the d'arenbergs I've had. This one was all frontloaded. Yeah, delicious and luscious when shaking hands with the tongue, but vanished pretty quickly. I'll give it a three since I was fairly far along on rose and prosecco when I switched over.

I have enjoyed the previous two vintages of this wine, especially with everyday food like hamburgers and pizza. However, I find the 2006 bigger and more alcoholic, almost overpowering the same dishes. Still good, but here's hoping for a leaner 2007.

Nice, Dry, Smooth then Spicy. Probably really good with anything with tomato sauce, especially pizza.

14.5% alcohol and it's a shiraz not syrah..?. Floral aroma with hint of spice. Light-medium body with mild berries and rosehips. Easy finish. Very drinkable. Bring to a casual party or have it with non-sophisticated meal (eg pizza, burger..).

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 89The 2006 The Stump Jump GSM is composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, and 10% Mourvedre. Dark ruby-colored, it has an expressive perfume of earth, black cherry, black raspberry, and blueberry. Supple, fruity, ripe and well-balanced, this tasty wine is an excellent value. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
