The Stump Jump Sauvignon Blanc 2016
The Story Behind 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.
A mixed basket of tropical fruits on the nose, including pineapple, passionfruit and lychee with a subtle undercurrent of sweet pea and fresh cut grass. The palate is wonderfully flavoursome, again with an abundance of luscious, tropical fruits. This is tempered by a spritzy, energetic acid, adding freshness, elegance and length. Clean and crisp, simple and satisfying. Bottoms up.
