Winemaker's Notes:

Marsanne, a full-bodied wine with heady aromas of honeysuckle and almonds, is an excellent blending partner for aromatic varieties with high natural acidity, such as Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. These three varietals have proved themselves to be a popular blend since this wine's first release.

The Stump Jump is at its best while young and will continue to remain fresh for the next three years. It is perfect drinking on a warm summer day, and a perfect match for a wide variety of light dishes.

About d'Arenberg:

One of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and Rhone varietals, d'Arenberg has managed to turn individuality into an art form by doing a whole lot of little things differently. The original vineyards were established by Joseph Osborn in 1912 in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus on traditional winemaking and nurturing their old-vine material, the Osborn clan has successfully established themselves as one of the country's leading producers of concentrated wines that are full of character.
