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. So good it’s best in magnums!

Rich and smooth as silk. Long, super-ripe, black fruit finish
Ripe plums, spices, wild brambles. Very attractive
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 have a turbo charging effect on each other, creating a velvety, voluptuous, and irresistible style. Serve in large glasses with steak or a Sunday roast.
"Simply delicious. Never heard of Durif grape before but this blend with Shiraz is glorious. Try it!"
