A fun wine laden with tropical fruits and just a whiff of fresh cut grass on the nose. Tropical passionfruit and gooseberry flavours dominate the palate, with a herbal twist reminiscent of crunchy snow peas. Lively acid makes this wine very refreshing and balanced.

The Story Behind The Name
The name ‘Stump Jump’ pays homage to a significant South Australian invention – the Stump Jump plough. As well as clearing the land around McLaren Vale, it was adopted worldwide in the late 19th century because of its ability to ride over stumps and gnarled roots, saving hard working farmers valuable time and energy.
- The Stump Jump Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and aromatic, just crying out for a sunny afternoon.
- The nose is full of flowers, passion-fruit and exotic tropical fruit like guava, mangoes and lychees.
- The palate is lively with zippy acid giving raciness amongst the citrus and peaches. Finishing crisp, long and lingering.
