Every vintage the ‘Stump’ proves our most popular big Aussie red. Who’d have thought it of the experimental French grape Durif? In the hands of Trophy winning winemaker Alan Kennett, and combined with Shiraz, it’s so delicious – best in magnums!
"Never fails to please. Such great value. So easy to drink"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
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 unbeatable in every way. 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 seem to complement each other perfectly, creating a velvety, voluptuous, and irresistible style. Serve in large glasses with steak or a Sunday roast.
