- ABV 14.9%
- Closure: Cork
Absolutely pitch black in colour with a very deep dark purple black hue. Hedonistic scents of ripe blackberry, dark plum and liquorice hypnotise the olfactory senses with subtlety toasted vanillin oak, dark chocolate, hints of fennel and spicy earth ensuing. Rich with a thickly coated texture that sees lavish flavours of ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark plum layered across the palate with extraordinary concentration and power. Velvety, plush like tannins with smoky vanillin oak, fennel, earth and spice sitting underneath the deep well of fruit. The finish long and flamboyant.
Drink over the next 8-10 years.
Sourced from a vineyard not far from the winery in the Light Pass subregion of Barossa Valley, the 2018 Andelmonde Shiraz boasts lovely raspberry perfumes and gentle herbal nuances of mint and black tea. Full-bodied and creamy-textured, with a long, silky finish and mouthwatering acids, it's another fabulous effort from Dan Standish. Drink 2021-2040.
Joe Czerwinski – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
Kalimna Road, Light Pass. Andelmonde. Or the demimonde, the kind of dissolute half-world where people like me spend their Saturday mornings tasting wine. Here’s an excellent wine, and to an extent, it suffers from being tasted next to the other releases from Standish. Though, standing on the shoulders of giants, and all that…
So pretty. Raspberry, mint, violet, roses, milk chocolate. It’s medium to full-bodied, bright and buoyant, juicy and deft, and while it doesn’t have the heft and length of the other wines in this release, does lay on the charm to wonderful effect. It has a limpid quality that lifts it well above the ruck of so many Barossa wines. The more time I spend with it, the more I appreciate its quality. A quiet achiever, if you like. Beautiful svelte wine. More to come. Drink 2023-2035+
