91/100 'Premium' | Cameron Douglas MS
The Stump Jump range from D'Arenberg delivers superb flavour and intensity with the quaffer price tag. Loaded with cherry and dark berry fruits flavours, this is a perfectly balanced weeknight drinker that won't disappoint.
Fun fact: this label is designed as an eye test - if you can hold the bottle at arms length and can still read the label then you're good to have another glass!
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A bright, refreshing, varietal and flavoursome expression with aromas and flavours of fresh red currant and raspberry flesh, moments of black currant and soft toasty barrel spices. Clove and red peppercorn, some warming alcohol and core flavours that reflect the bouquet."
Sam Kim writes "Attractively fruited and aromatic, the wine shows dark plum, spiced cherry and roasted nut characters with subtle meaty complexity. The palate displays succulent fruit flavours and rounded mouthfeel, finishing smooth and lingering"
The winery writes "The value this wine delivers for the money is incredible. The wine starts out with a deep ruby colour. On the nose, the wine is full of cherry and blackberry fruits, which continue on the palate. What sets this Shiraz apart is the intensity of this ripe fruit, which is just as intense on the finish as when the wine first hits your tongue. The finish has a mineral-graphite edge that balances the fruit nicely. In all, it drinks far, far, above its price point."
