d’Arenberg 'The Stump Jump' Riesling 2018, McLaren Vale
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.
This Riesling is fresh as a daisy and wonderfully aromatic. Lovely and zippy it is full of white flowers, lemon and lime with a touch of sweetness, and a rich, juicy flavour profile, with fine acidity providing a sharp crispness to the finish.
Extremely bright, refreshing and easy to drink you may need to use the label's eye test after enjoying this wine a little too much.
