  • THE BRIEF
  • The 2017 releases from Dan Standish have landed, and as one of Australia's pre-eminent cult winemakers, these are going to sell out in a flash.

    In 2017, Dan culled the number of barrels produced by a two-thirds, meaning his commitment to quality and consistency has rung through.

    The Standish Relic Shiraz is kindly referred to as the 'bruiser' of the pack. Co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier, it comes in at a whopping 15.5% alcohol. Like a great Amarone wine, however, the warmth is never felt, with a dense array of roasting spices, broth, blueberry, mulberry and cassis standing tall and proud, inviting the drinker into a heady concoction of mulled fruit and dense, inky tannins.

    This is assertive stuff, and is the kind of wine that Australia and the Barossa should truly be proud of. It's wears the region as a badge of honour, with the sun-kissed, dry-grown ancient fruit and the brilliant guiding force of winemaker Dan Standish ensuring all you need for this world-class Australian wine. One day, Dan's going to come to his senses and charge a whole lot more for entry... so best jump on the bandwagon now.

  • Sourced from the Hongell Family vineyard in Krondorf, and co-fermented with 2% Viognier.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A stunning wine with ripe blackberries, liquorice, dark chocolate, morello and blue fruits. So expressive, and inky coloured.

    JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE


    Standish's 2017 The Relic Shiraz-Viognier includes 2% Viognier, just enough to soften the wine's considerable tannins and add a floral element on the nose. Gorgeous scents of brambly blackberries and anise lead into a wine that's full-bodied and plush, long and silky, adding hints of cocoa and espresso on the finish.

    This shiraz has a small viognier component that adds early complexity, while fleshing out and filling the palate. Aromas of blackberries and wild raspberries lead to an impressively dense palate that has plums, blackberries and spiced chocolate to close. Drink or hold.
