This wine is ideal for robust foods simply prepared. Try it with sausages, steak and roast game, as well as with simple casseroles. It makes for a great barbecue wine, and will work with most cheeses (though it is not so great with blue cheese). Avoid creamy sauces and anything too salty or spicy.

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016)88 pts

D'Arenberg's 2016 The Stump Jump Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre is a substantial step above the 2015 version. It's still characterized by red fruit and accents of tar and olive, but it's less tart and shrill, with a medium to full-bodied palate and more richness and texture. The cherries and raspberries linger in tea-like notes on the finish. As usual, it's a terrific value.

Wine Spectator (2016)88 pts

Tangy berry and cherry flavors are juicy and crisp on a firm frame, with accents of toasted herb and cedar. Details of chai tea linger on the finish, where a fresh, loamy earth note picks up. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre.

Vinification Notes

Winemaking at d’Arenberg is very traditional and simplistic. The red wines are fermented in headed-down open fermenters. To get the right amount of colour and tannin extraction wader clad cellar hands foot tread the ferments. The skins are then separated via the traditional method of basket pressing then matured in barriques and large casks.
