The Stump Jump Red

87 Rating GSM

Since 1912, the Osborn family has tended the 19th century vineyards and from 1927, made wine at d’Arenberg, their winery located near McLaren Vale, South Australia.
Land for many of the region’s old vineyards was originally cleared using the ‘Stump Jump’ plough, a South Australian invention which enabled the ploughshare to jump over the gnarled roots of ‘mallee’ Eucalyptus trees, saving valuable time and resources.

The grapes used for this Stump Jump are from predominantly very old bush-vine Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre vines. Small parcels of groups sourced from various vineyards were gently crushed, fermented in traditional open-tanks, basket pressed and matured prior to bottling.
