The Name: It is rumoured that the inventor of the Stump Jump plough, which enabled a ploughshare to jump over tree roots, had poor eyesight and required regular tests to ensure he could still operate machinery. The design of this label is inspired by an optometrist’s eyechart and serves as a makeshift sobriety test. If you can hold the bottle at arm’s length and still read the front label, you can enjoy another glass.
The Winemaking: The grapes used in this wine underwent gentle crushing, temperature controlled fermentation and basket pressing prior to bottling.
The Wine: Fresh lime and blossom-filled bouquet leads to a citrus and pear-like flavours. Tropical flavours of lemon and ripe pineapple reach the surface merging with a touch of sweetness. Zesty and clean acidity gives a long finish and a very pleasant aftertaste. A great value Riesling.
