Since 1912 the Osborn family have tended the 19th century vineyards at their d'Arenberg Winery located in McLaren Vale, South Australia. The Osborns are proud to release The Stump Jump range of premium McLaren Vale wines, so named as the land for many of the region's old vineyards was originally cleared using the Stump Jump plough. This South Australian invention enabled the ploughshare to jump over the gnarled "mallee" Eucalypt roots, saving valuable time and resources.
The Stump Jump white from the 2000 vintage is based on the Riesling (75%) and Marsanne (25%) grape varieties. d'Arenberg was the first winery in McLaren Vale to plant Marsanne, the origins of which can be traced back to the Northern Rhone Valley in France.
