d'Arenberg Shiraz, Mclaren Vale 750 ml
The stump jump. Est 1912. Since 1912 the Osborn family have tended vineyards in McLaren Vale, South Australia. The grapes used in this wine are mostly from very old bush vines, and underwent gentle crushing, traditional open tank fermentation, basket pressing and oak maturation prior to bottling. It is rumoured that the inventor of the Stump Jump plough, which enabled a ploughshare to jump over tree roots, had poor eye-sight and required regular tests to ensure he could still operate machinery. If you can hold this bottle at arm's length and still read the front label, you can enjoy another glass.
