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 famed Schubert vineyard on the golden mile in Marananga, this is a wine that is all about the power and impact of classic Barossa fruit.
Dark, brooding, hulking wine with a monumental nose of blackberries, violets, cocoa and vanilla spice. A classic in the making.
JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE
Mulberries and blueberries appear alongside a hint of white pepper on the nose of Standish's 2017 The Schubert Theorem Shiraz, sourced from Marananga. It's full-bodied, firm and structured, loaded with mixed berries and balanced by savory undercurrents of espresso and black olive. It finishes long and mouthwatering yet also dusty and tannic. Give it another 2-3 years in the cellar and drink it over the following decade or so.
This is an ultra rich bottling of a parcel from one of the Northern Barossa’s most respected growers. Rich blackberries pervade every corner of the nose and palate. Luscious, silky fruit tannins flow in effortless, succulent style and deliver plush and glossy-ripe texture to close. Impeccable. Drink or hold.
