d’Arenberg Stump Jump Riesling
5 Star James Halliday Winery
Only $11.99 a Bottle at Winenutt
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. A zingy little Riesling with a real focus on fruit and freshness. Lemon-lime sherbet and fragrant frangipani notes shot with dart like acidity and just enough sweetness to round it all out. Simple, fun and refreshing. Ideal as an aperitif or perhaps try it served with some fresh, raw fish. Either way, the brightness and energy of this wine will tantalise your taste buds and have you looking for a refill.
