d'Arenberg The Stump Jump Red
From raspberry and rhubarb to cedar and soot. Aromas jump unimpeded from the glass. The medium weighted palate is similarly expressive, its impressive array of fruit given lift and vibrancy by an equally scintillating line of acidity. Towards the finish, chalky tannins sweep across the tongue, adding savouriness and crunch. Bright Grenache, earthy Shiraz, and spicy Mourvedre marry harmoniously in this ever popular GSM.

|Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2013 The Stump Jump Grenache / Shiraz / Mourvdre displays a gorgeous kirsch, black raspberry and dried mint-scented nose with hints of anise and roses. Medium-bodied, it packs in the spicy berry coulis flavors with soft, velvety tannins and an herbal lift on the long finish.|
