***SIMPLY WINES - TOP 5 Favourite Shiraz of 2018. Includes shipping to Melbourne and Sydney Metro***

“The sensational Shiraz offers up scents of roasted meats, beef broth, blackberries, and cassis liqueur. Its texture, sumptuous depth, and incredible richness and purity blew me away. Despite its huge size, it possesses tremendous equilibrium and definition. Drink this classic South Australian Shiraz over the next 10-15 years.”
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate

Dense, latent and strapping, this flaunts the flawless purity that can be leached from the famed sandy flints of Vine Vale. Tightly wound with its cards close to the vest, deep-set aromatics of coal, pressed currant and black truffle are foiled by redolent tones of tilled soil, beef broth and slow roasted meats.

Dark and brooding with immense concentration, persistence and energy it is somewhat of a heroic style but is gently laced with a long fine cloak of silken tannin. More reticent than its stable mate, it shows wonderful staying power for those with immense patience and cool, dark cellars.

Sourced from the STANDISH Family Vineyard – Siegersdorf Road, Vine Vale, Barossa Valley. Planted on own roots in 1912 (7.6 Hectares – 12ft x 10ft spacing). Fine white sand over deep heavy red clay at 302m above sea level.

THE STANDISH WINE COMPANY is a wine company located in Australia's Barossa Valley. The estate produces multiple examples of Shiraz from vines with ungrafted rootstocks, including The Standish, The Relic, Andelmonde, Borne Bollene and The Schubert Theorem, from specific vineyard sites in Barossa Valley and Eden Valley.

The company was founded in 1999, after Dan Standish, who was the winemaker at Torbeck Vintners, secured a small parcel of Shiraz vines from his parents' vineyard in Vine Vale, a subregion of Barossa Valley. Today this 8-hectare (19-acre) vineyard, which is planted on white sandy soils over deep clay, contributes grapes for the flagship wine, The Standish.
