D'Arenberg Stump Jump Gsm Mclaren Vale South Australia 2005

Member Review by Bill Howard:

Drinkable, but not especially delicious. Sour cherry with a hint of sage pork sausage on the nose. Perfume dominates the undeveloped mid-palate that reminds me of 3 day old sweet apple cider just starting to turn, mixed with Welchs white grape juice. Long aromatic finish that is trying very hard except it edgest toward nail polish remover. Overall, confused wine that does a lot of things, but doesn't really come together well. $11 86 points WKH

d’Arenberg has developed an enviable reputation with their range of idiosyncratic wines. From the Stump Jumps through to the highly regarded Icons, these wines offer value, individuality and a true taste of McLaren Vale. The Icons The Ironstone Pressings, The Coppermine Road, The Dead Arm Shiraz The Icons are the most powerful and concentrated of d’Arenberg’s wines. Comprising of the Dead Arm, the Coppermine Road and the Ironstone Pressings, this range represents the pinnacle of d’Arenberg’s efforts. Century old, low-yielding vines produce intensely flavored fruit which is traditionally vinified and undergoes rigorous barrel-selection prior to classification. Chester's Champions The Lucky Lizard, The Twentyeight Road, The Last Ditch, The Money Spider, The Feral Fox, The Sticks & Stones, The Derelict Vineyard, The Cadenzia, The Galvo Garage, The Laughing Magpie Since the early 1900’s, d’Arenberg has pioneered innovative wine styles and varietal plantings. Chester’s Champions represent d’Arenberg’s most exciting new ventures, offering an eclectic alternative to the known and loved bastions of the portfolio. The Classic Red Stripes The Dry Dam, The Broken Fishplate, The Olive Grove, The Hermit Crab, The Custodian, The High Trellis, d’Arrys Original, The Love Grass, The Footbolt. The Classic Red Stripes represent the backbone of the d’Arenberg range. Considered the epitome of d’Arenberg’s style, they are a reflection of skillful winemaking and unique terroir – regionally expressive, fruit-forward and approachable. The Stump Jumps Stump Jump White, Stump Jump Red, Stump Jump Shiraz Named after an important South Australian invention – the Stump Jump plough, these wines are typically light- or un-oaked, offering a fresh, approachable view of McLaren Vale’s premium varietals.

Fresh, sharp aromas of bramble & baked fruit. Medium, lithe, fresh & zippy body with subtle oak. Dark plum & cherry, mineral & eucalyptus flavors. Medium-high acidity, slightly scratchy tannins and a long, but unrefined finish. A rough-around-the-edges, but enjoyable wine.
