Every vintage, winemaker Alan Kennett pulls out all the stops to create another sublime ‘Stump’. Before this wine came along, Durif was an experimental French grape relegated to history. Black Stump has changed all that. One sip and you’re smitten.

According to winemaker Alan Kennett (and thousands of Black Stump customers), when you combine Durif and Shiraz “magical things happen”. Perhaps that explains Black Stump’s splendid decade of popularity. The wine owes its name to a mythical outback marker of the boundary between the known world and the unknown. Describe anything as the best “this side of the black stump” and you mean it’s reckoned to be unbeatable. How appropriate for an affordable Aussie red of peerless intensity and popularity. Dark Durif, “the grape that takes no prisoners” (The Observer), and impressively juicy Shiraz make a perfect marriage, creating a velvety, voluptuous, and irresistible style. Serve in large glasses with steak and kidney pie or a Sunday roast.
"What an incredible wine. So silky smooth. Incredible value - most definitely a repeat purchase"
