2016 Standish The Schubert Theorem Shiraz

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$110.00 Bottle
  • Cellar 8 - 10 years (2026-2028)
  • ABV 14.5%
  • Closure: Cork

A pitch black core backed by a very deep bright dark purple hue virtually stains the glass. Both alluring and intense, luscious ripe blackberry, liquorice, black cherry and dark plum aromas intoxicate the nostrils. Intermingling with the fruit are whiffs of lightly smoked vanillin cedar, dark chocolate, faint scorched earth and spice. Prodigiously rich and powerful with a sexy, opulent feel this is the most approachable wine of the trio yet it still possesses great underlying structure. The palate is soaked with a ménage of succulent blackberry, dark plum and liquorice flavours which are underpinned by vanillin cedar, crushed rock like elements and spice. A bedrock of sturdily built tannins provide the structural plates for the decadent fruit which shows terrific fruit purity and concentration. Exceptionally long and powerful with a chewy blackberry, dark plum, liquorice, vanillin cedar, crushed rock and spicy pepper aftertaste.
Cellar 8-10 years plus.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
From Roennfeldt Road, Marananga, one of the more famous addresses in the Barossa Valley.
It’s as black as a night with no moon in the Scottish Highlands, and I know this, because one night after quite a few whiskies I took it upon myself to go for a walk one cold winter’s night, and it took me quite some time to find my way back to the lodge… Anyway, I digress. Bold perfume of lavender and vanilla, sweet damp earth, blackberry and blueberry pie with toasted crust, liquorice and dark chocolate, perhaps some spice on that pie crust, too. Full bodied, but fresh and vibrant, with blackberry flavour and acidity, a deep well of ripe open-weave grainy tannin, depth and intensity, rippling tannin thunders on the earthy and toasty finish. It’s dark and charismatic. It’s long. There’s some polish and finesse, yet it still feels wild and unfettered. It does the Barossa Valley proud. Laugh and think (and drink), this is Australia.

Gary Walsh – The Wine Front

From a Marananga vineyard, Standish's 2016 The Schubert Theorem Shiraz is even darker hued than The Relic. Blueberries, licorice and violets appear on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is rich and creamy-textured, growing more tannic and savory on the nearly endless finish. Monolithic and young, give this at least a couple of years to become more approachable. Drink 2020-2035
