The Black Stump Durif Shiraz 2018

Award Winner

International Wine & Spirit Competition
Bronze Medal - 2017 GB

Down Under, ‘beyond the black stump’ means you’re really off the beaten path. But remote origins haven’t stopped this Black Stump – it’s racked up acclaim at the most prestigious competitions in the world, including Mundus Vini, the AWC Vienna Wine Challenge and more. We’re confident the just-launched 2017 will carry on the tradition.

All medals and international awards aside, you really know a wine is special when customers call the winery when they run out of it, hoping for more. That’s the kind of devotion The Black Stump inspires. The secret to its success? Star winemaker Alan Kennett, one of an elite group to win the Jimmy Watson Trophy (Australia’s premier wine prize).

It takes a special recipe too. As Alan says, when you blend Durif with Shiraz “magical things happen.” Durif brings power, structure and chocolaty, blueberry flavors. Shiraz adds more oomph and spicy bramble notes.
