    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Osborns are proud to release The Stump Jump range of premium McLaren Vale wines, named after the region's old vineyards which were 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 2006 vintage was one of the most condensed vintages experienced at d'Arenberg and one of the best ever. After a dry winter, heavy rains in spring allowed for consistent flowering and veraison with almost no interruptions. Eventually, warmer conditions prevailed which was ideal for enhancing fragrance and producing wonderful levels of natural acidity and flavor intensity.

    The 2006 Stump Jump Red is bright red in appearance with an aromatic nose of ripe, juicy red fruits, dominated with cranberries and loganberries, spice, cardamom, green pepper and a hint of earthy herbal notes. The palate is rich and ripe with mulberries, plums, white chocolate, and spices balanced by ripe tannins. The finish is soft and balanced with savory edges and lively acidity. A pleasure to drink now or cellar over the next 3-5 years.
