dArenberg The Stump Jump White
An unoaked blend of premium varietals which changes from vintage to vintage, but always conspires to create an excellent crisp dry, lively white, proudly named after an important South Australian invention - the stump jump plough. Many of McLaren Vales old vineyards were originally cleared using this invention.
The plough saved many a vineyard owners' back and patience as the plough jumped over the most stubborn roots, saving valuable time and resources.
Following harvesting in the cool of the night and gentle crushing by our open mouthed, rubber toothed Demoisy crusher, the Stump Jump White was lightly pressed by dArenbergs basket presses to ensure the gentle extraction of colour and flavour. Fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats ensured the fresh varietal fruit characters were retained in the wine.
