2012 Stump Jump GSM

2012 Stump Jump GSM

2017 March Wine of the Month

 

The Story Behind The Name

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.

 

 

The Characteristics

The 2012 Stump Jump 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.
