d’Arenberg The Stump Jump Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre
A very pure expression of this popular wine. All three varieties play an important role in the wine’s overall perception.
The Shiraz offers dark plum fruits, mulberries and licorice with plenty of concentration, depth and velvety tannin.
The Grenache adds a lovely lusciousness to the wine with raspberry, blueberry and floral notes adding prettiness. Both of the afore mentioned varieties also give a little white pepper character which has been accentuated in the cooler vintage and really acts as a point of interest.
Finally, the Mourvedre provides a perception of elegance and restraint through its lovely line of lovely red fruits with a hint of dried herb and importantly, a fine chalky tannin that carries all these characters to a long and wonderfully moreish finish. – The Winery
