The Black Stump Durif Shiraz Red Wine

The Black Stump Durif Shiraz 2015 75cl Red WineSimply a No.1 bestselling wine – now with over a decade of sumptuous success

Velvet smooth Aussie red made from Shiraz and Durif for intense bramble fruit flavours and a prickle of spice

Irresistible with a char-grilled steak or Sunday roast

According to winemaker Alan Kennett, when you combine Durif and spicy Shiraz “magical things happen”. Thousands of Black Stump customers seem to concur, which explains the wine’s decade of popularity. Black Stump owes its name to a mythical outback landmark, now part of the Aussie language. An expression of the biggest/richest anything “this side of the black stump” effectively means “in the known world”.

How appropriate for a wine of peerless intensity and popularity. Dark Durif – “the grape that takes no prisoners” (The Observer) – and impressively juicy, spicy Shiraz have a turbo charging effect on each other, creating a velvety and irresistible style. Serve in large glasses and enjoy with char-grilled steak or Sunday roast.
