Product description

You know a wine’s special if customers call the winery demanding more. That’s the devotion The Black Stump inspires. From Alan Kennett, one of an elite few to win the Jimmy Watson Trophy (Australia’s premier wine prize), its name references the mythical Outback landmark (on the label) tied to the Aussie saying ‘beyond the black stump,’ or, ‘middle of nowhere.’ Inky Durif and berry-packed Shiraz used to grow in remote vineyards across South Eastern Australia, so it fits – though this wine’s chocolatey, sun-baked, black-fruit flavors are anything but distant in the glass. With a long history of huge international acclaim, it’s sure to impress your guests (especially when served with hearty beef dishes). Famed for its power, structure, and mocha-tinged, black-fruit character, Durif is “the grape that takes no prisoners” (Tim Atkin, MW). Known as Syrah in France, peppery, berry-packed Shiraz takes on a richer, sun-drenched character in Australia. As Alan says, when you blend Durif with Shiraz “magical things happen.” Together, they turbo-charge each other to make an irresistible style.
