2019 Standish The Schubert Theorem Shiraz
Roennfeldt Road in the parish of Marananga.
Blue and purple fruits, a fair bit of spicy biscuity oak, ground coffee, some floral top notes. Thick, earthy, coffee-laced and dark fruited, very dense and packed, tannin has a compact but slightly rugged feel, saline and spicy finish of length and grip. A shag-pile carpet of a wine. Needs a fair bit of time. Drink 2024 - 2034.

Just incredible shiraz, this has the x-factor of purity and inherent complexity. So layered and so detailed. The aromas and flavors of intense blackberry, rich plum, blueberry and cherry fold over and over each other, together with plenty of spice and a flicker of dark stones. The palate is so saturated and so deeply set with dark fruit cascading long and lively on the finish. Stunning shiraz once again. Drink over the next decade.
