Number 92 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!
A voluminous, sweet fruit, mulberry, raspberry, spicy and earthy nose leads through to the palate showing the same flavors as the aromas. A great round glycerol sweetness fills the mouth with a touch of fresh, ripe fruit tannins on the aftertaste.
Once picked, the fruit is gently crushed in our 'Demoisy' open mouthed, rubber toothed crusher and pumped into traditional headed down fermenters. Following fermentation, The Stump Jump Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre is gently pressed by our nineteenth Century "Coq" and "Bromely & Tregoning" basket presses prior to oak maturation.
This is a rich, soft and flavorsome red in the traditional McLaren Vale style highlighting lifted rose petal aromas and dense flavors of 90 year old Mourvedre. Best served at room temperature, this wine will gain complexity with careful cellaring over the next 2-5 years.
