The Stump Jump Shiraz 2008

TASTING NOTES
The nose is full of ripe and juicy red fruits and fresh plums mixed with dark cherry and exotic spices.

The palate is rich, round and juicy with ripe raspberry and blackcurrant in abundance and a bit of plum stone, rhubarb, chocolate and licorice adding to the mix.

The spicy tannins are fine and finish off this easy drinking fruity wine nicely.

WINEMAKERS NOTES
This wine is the combination of many individual parcels of wines that flowed down from senior wines in the d’Arenberg stable. It also includes parcels from a range of new growers.

Red winemaking at d’Arenberg is very traditional and simplistic. All of the reds wines are fermented in headed-down open fermenters prior to being pressed in our traditional basket-presses, then matured in barriques and large casks prior to
estate bottling.
