D’Arenberg The Stump Jump White
Country: Australia, McLaren Vale
Tasting Notes: The complexity of the blend is reflected in the truly exotic nature of the aromas. We can detect everything from frangipani, citrus and white stone fruits through to more savoury notes of raw cashew and fresh cut radish. The palate displays a wonderful volume of fruit, almost creamy in texture were it not for the dart-like line of acidity that checks the roundness. From beginning to end there is a transition, from the more fruity like characters of peach and citrus into more savoury, nutty, nuanced flavours on the finish. A wonderfully satisfying white wine with plenty of fruit character and a clean, crisp, dry finish.
Varietal: Blend of Riesling (60%) Sauvignon Blanc (20%) Marsanne (11%) Roussanne (9%)
Pairing: This is a seriously enjoyable wine and is the perfect aperitif or accompaniment to summer meals.
