2016 d'Arenberg "The Stump Jump" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1387344 90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Distinctive, with a fresh note of spearmint complementing the juicy core of plum and blackberry flavors. Herb, chai tea and cigar box elements linger on the long, expressive finish, where the tannins firm up but never get in the way. *Best Value* (MW) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The medium-bodied 2016 The Stump Jump Shiraz is another terrific bargain. No, it's not a big, plush wine, but it is a crisp, remarkably drinkable mouthful of Shiraz. Red plums and cherries are buttressed by enough tannins so that this can ably partner with weeknight burgers but not so much as to weigh down the wine. (JC) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark In d'Arenberg's fashion, this well-priced wine is simultaneously rich and approachable. The raspberry and plum fruit is ripe and lifted, backed by red licorice, mocha and a distinctive herbal, peppery streak. On the palate, gravelly, earthy tannins run along a herbal, savory spine, keeping the fruit from veering into jam territory. Instead, it feels fresh and brambly. *Best Buy* (CP) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

This is a killer value on great Australian Shiraz! The wine touches on a bunch of palate points and exhibits wonderful complexity. There's juicy dark fruits like blackberry and plum, earthy spice, with just enough acidity and tannin to provide solid structure and balance. This could easily become your next favorite everyday red wine.

When you come across any wine priced at under $10, most of us wouldn't expect much in the way of complexity or intensity, just something cheap and easy drinking. This bottling, however, coming from one of the most respected producers in McLaren Vale, blew all expectations of a $10 wine out of the water. Surprisingly structured and crisp, this is not the fat and flabby style many people associate with Oz. Made mostly from very old bush vines, the Stump Jump does have concentrated fruit and a weighted body, but is accompanied by dusky tannin, and a significant amount of spice. McLaren Vale sits right on the coast to the south of Adelaide and the cooling ocean breezes and southerly latitude give this wine real breadth and freshness.While some would consider a $10 price tag to suggest an inferior wine, it would be a mistake to assume that of this wine. It is in fact truly delicious and shattered my expectations in the best way.
Top Value!
