#82 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009
The name 'Stump Jump' relates to the significant South Australian invention – the Stump Jump
plough. This plough became a popular piece of machinery for ploughing fields because of its
ability to ride over stumps and gnarled "mallee" Eucalypt roots and snags, saving valuable time
and resources by not stopping the draught horse.
Inviting fresh plum aromas leap out of the glass with raspberry and pretty pot-pourri notes
providing more complexity. The palate is juicy and spicy with an abundance of red fruits
that are fresh and vibrant. Licorice and rose petals come through on the mid palate and an
under-lying earthy complexity is evident all the way through. The tannins are powdery and
subtle on this juicy ready to drink red.
