The Black Stump Durif/Shiraz 2020

Rich, Smooth, Full Bodied, super ripe black fruit and chocolaty spice. A stunning wine.

When you combine Durif and Shiraz magical things happen. The dark Durif grape and the juicy Shiraz make a perfect marriage, creating a velvety, voluptuous and irresistible full bodied red.

Every year, winemaker Alan Kennet pulls out all the stops to create another sublime ‘Stump’. He combines Australia’s two powerhouse grapes, Shiraz and Durif, to make a supercharged black red, packed with ripe velvety fruit layered with spice.

Rex Mundi Shiraz/Grenache 2020

Smooth and fruity, one sip and you are smitten!

This irresistible black beauty is made from famously intense Shiraz and Grenache grapes grown on the craggy hillsides of France’s deep south coast – The Languedoc-Roussillion. Look up from the vines and you will see ruins of castles perching precariously on rocky peaks. This inhospitable landscape and these ancient strongholds were home to medieval Cathers who lived in awe of the evil God Rex Mundi. He corrupted the faithful with promises of earthly pleasures and the forbidden delights of mortal flesh. But behind this wine is a very kind soul – Herve Sabardell. Don’t even try to resist the temptation of this red, just sip and enjoy its marriage of liquorice scented Shiraz and luscious Grenache.

Didier and Karine Chopin are based in the Marne Valley, north west of Epernay. They bottled their first Champagne in 1989, made from grapes grown on Karine’s family’s estate.
