D'Arenberg the Stump Jump Gsm 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The name ‘Stump Jump’ pays homage to a significant South Australian invention - the Stump Jump plough. As well as clearing the land around McLaren Vale, it was adopted worldwide in the late 19th century because of its ability to ride over stumps and gnarled roots, saving valuable time and energy. The 2012 Stump Jump GSM shows generous fruit characters mixed with savoury nuances, subtle oak and fine, gritty tannin. Grenache is the hero, with its lovely rhubarb, blueberry and white pepper notes. The Shiraz brings darker fruits, plums, fennel and earth along with a more robust texture and tannin structure which fill out the mid palate. Finally, the splash of Mourvedre adds exotic dried herb, lavender, iodine and cured meat notes along with a certain elegance and mineral tannin that draws the wine to a lingering finsh. Balanced, pure with underlying complexities and delicious.

It is rare that I save an $8 bottle of wine for 6+ years. There will be 2 in this tasting. This wine still shows strong fruit after several years of quiet. Excellent tannic structure combines with still active acidity to allow for a wine the shows well with food - red meats - with a healthy mushroom sauce.are called for. Great wine wine making here. If, and I do mean if, you find a bottle drink now 91 points
