Black Stump fan Tony Laithwaite challenged Alan Kennett to "make the finest Durif the world has ever seen." The Premium. It's more intense and structured than the regular Black Stump. A gorgeous rich red, layered with black fruit and exotic spice.
Beyond the Label
Velvety and intense, black fruit richness, exotic spice, firm tannins
Meet Alan Kennett's The Premium – the Super Stumper, as we've begun to call it! It was Tony Laithwaite who, on tasting The Black Stump Reserve, said to Alan, "just how good can this wine be?" And so began the challenge for Alan to make the very best Durif the world has ever seen. It's a bit of a treat for Alan to make such a small batch red – so small, every bottle is numbered. Very little Durif is grown in Oz - it's less than 1% of plantings - and Alan takes a lot of it for our much loved regular Black Stump customers love. So, for The Premium, he picks 'the eyes out of the crop' - uses the very best and gives it top treatment. This is a rich, exotic and well spiced red, best after a few months-plus ageing. Enjoy with rich, hearty dishes.
"Excellent purchase. Delighted with the wine. Look forward to future bottles equalling or exceeding"
