The ideal everyday red with ripe, spicy fruit flavours.
The Stump Jump Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2014 is a complete surprise packet. This wine delivers beyond what its modest price tag would suggest. The nose and palate are incredibly complex presenting blackberry, dark cherry, spicy plum, dried currants, straw, walnuts, wet soil, bramble and mushroom. The palate remains refined and sleek. A mixture of primary and secondary characters offering depth of flavour. Fine acidity and powdery tannins complete the experience adding life and savouriness. This wine is hitting its straps upon release with the potential to be enjoyed for the next 3 to 5 years.
The grapes used in this wine are mostly from very old bush vines, and underwent gentle crushing, traditional open tank fermentation, basket pressing and oak maturation prior to bottling.

It is rumoured that the inventor of the Stump Jump plough, which enabled a ploughshare to jump over tree roots, had poor eyesight and required regular tests to ensure he could still operate machinery. The design of this label is inspired by an optometrist's eyechart and serves as a makeshift sobriety test. If you can hold the bottle at arm's length and still read the front label, you can enjoy another glass.
