"A terrific value for current consumption, the 2011 Stump Jump GSM blends 46% Grenache, 39% Shiraz and 15% Mourvèdre into a plump yet firm wine that combines black cherry fruit with savory notes of chocolate, herbs and roasted meat. There’s even a touch of mocha on the long finish."~JC

"Vivid ruby. High-pitched, peppery aromas of redcurrant and cherry pit, with a smoky overtone. Bright and energetic on the palate, offering sharply focused red fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors, plus a hint of candied rose. Closes with firm cut and good, spicy persistence, on a lingering note of anise."

View all from d'Arenberg Winery
d'Arenberg WineryOne of the most significant wineries in McLaren Vale, d'Arenberg was established in 1912 when Joseph Osborn, a teetotaler and director of Thomas Hardy and Sons, sold his stable of prize winning horses to purchase the property that now houses the winery, cellar door and d'Arry's Verandah Restaurant.
Joseph's son Frank joined him on the land and they set about acquiring some more vineyards. Joseph Osborn died in 1921 leaving full control of the business to Frank.
In the early years grapes were sold to other wineries before the winery was built in 1927 shortly after Francis (universally known as d'Arry) Osborn was born.
Initially making fortified wines to export to England, the business prospered until World War II stifled demand. This coincided with Frank's ill health which forced d'Arry to leave school in 1943 at age 16 to help his father run the business and work the land.

d'Arry took full control of the business in 1957 upon Frank's death and in 1959 he launched his own wine label named in honour of his mother, Helena d'Arenberg, who died shortly after giving birth to him. d'Arry decided to put a red stripe on the label, inspired by happy memories of his school days at Prince Alfred College, where he wore the crimson-and-white striped school tie.
d'Arry's son Chester joined the business in 1984 as Chief Winemaker and makes distinctive wines using traditional methods both in the vineyard and the winery.

"This wine got a 90 from WS, which I think was probably earned. It's a luscious tasting shiraz blend, which will not quite as long on the finish as a fine $20-$30 Aussie shiraz, certainly comports itself handsomely.To me this qualifies in the category of a red daily drinker without question. I'll be back to buy a case of this puppy, although I'll probably try the previous year's straight Shiraz to compare before I do.All in all a lovely bottle. And a great find as a vintner I didn't previously know."
