d'Arenberg The Stump Jump Red GSM 2017
|Region||Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale|
This wine screams value. A rich ruby red appearance with a fragrant nose of raspberry, a hint of dark cherry and spice. Silky texture on the palate, but with a juicy fruit core that shows plum, red berries, and a savoury finish. There are lovely soft tannins and some slight acidity. The fruit weight and silkyness means this wine can be enjoyed now, but it will keep developing over time. with minimal disease pressure and above average crop levels.
Ripe, fleshy blueberries and raspberries drive this red blend without too much oak getting in the way. There's an underbelly of flowers, cinnamon and peppery spice. The tannins are typically muscular, while the fruit is juicy, silky and fresh.
Robust wild berry, plum, licorice and roasted herb flavors show a tangy blood orange note on the muscular finish, where cedar, tobacco and black walnut details linger with hints of spice. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. Drink now.
