  • Marananga Shiraz, and the darkest, most brooding release of Dan's wines. Taken from the Helbig Family vineyard, this wine is as unforgiving as the pitch blackness of its mathematics strewn label. An abyss of flavour, tannin and depth. This is a super-grippy style of Shiraz, with monumental tang to the acids, and a breathtaking display of toast and smoked meats. Sometimes you've just got to catch yourself and think, Grange or this? I know which I would choose every day of the week. Take a bow Dan Standish.


    Sourced from the various prime sections of the Schubert family vineyard in Marananga (Helbig). Planted on own roots, old vine stock. Deep red/brown earths with eroded protrusions of crystalline quartz ranging between 272m-296 above sea level.


    The Schubert Theorem lies within a branch of mathematics known as 'knot theory'. It states that any knot can be uniquely decomposed as the connected sum of prime knots. Aptly named, this wine deconstructs the Schubert family vineyard into its distinct sections, taking the finest elements of each and re-assembling to connect and enhance their strengths.


    '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.'

    '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.'
