Black Stump has ignited the flame of enthusiasm under the previously obscure Durif grape. The Reserve however is pure Shiraz, selected from the vintage’s best performing region – Clare Valley in 2016. This is a Gold medal, dense fruit and spice gem.
"What a great wine! Fruity yet it complements most food, including heavily spiced meals. Love it!"
Online Review for 2015
Australia is renowned for sumptuous Shiraz, with the likes of Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace fetching in excess of £100 a bottle. Black Stump Reserve is a showcase red and priced within reach of us all. Winemaker Alan Kennett knows how to impress – his ‘everyday’ Black Stump once won a Trophy Prestige in Bordeaux of all places. So with the benchmark set, he applied his skills to quality Shiraz from South Australia’s Clare Valley, a small, hilly region 40 miles north of the Barossa. With American oak maturation, the wine’s rich blackberry fruit has taken on seductive overtones of mocha and vanilla. Full bodied and smooth, it makes a fine and elegant fireside companion, and matches casseroles and roast red meats with finesse.
