98 | Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski
The star of this year's lineup is the 2017 Lamella Shiraz, sourced from a single dry-grown Eden Valley vineyard in the vicinity of Henscke's Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace vineyards. It shows a healthy dusting of cracked peppery and dried spices but also layers of red and blue fruit and savory notes of black olives and espresso. Full-bodied and silky but taut, it ideally needs another 2-3 years of cellaring to soften the tannins on the long, dusty finish.
97 | Decanter, Sarah Ahmed
Anise, red liquorice, black cardamom and pepper, dried herb, truffle and mineral undertones – decant this in order to best appreciate these dramatic, dynamic aromas. In the mouth, the fresh raspberry, damson, blackberry, bramble and blueberry fruits are lightly kissed with mocha oak. Ripe but present, sinewy tannins build into a long, firm, spicy finish.

Having spent a stint at Australian icon Torbreck, Dan Standish travelled the world learning from the best winemakers in the Rhone, Napa, Sonoma and Spain. Upon his return to Australia, Dan started producing wine from ancient parcels of Shiraz that were farmed by his father. All of the grapes are handpicked, wild fermented in open-top fermenters and matured in French oak for 18-22 months with the aim being to let the vineyard expression shine through as opposed to the oak overpowering.
Dan currently producers four wines; The Standish – Shiraz from Greenock, The Schubert – Shiraz from Roennfeldt Road, Lamella – Shiraz from Eden Valley, The Relic – 99% Shiraz / 1% Viognier from Krondorf. Across the board, the Standish wines are incredibly concentrated or opulent but are balanced with precision and fruit purity. In the last few vintages, both the Wine Advocate and James Suckling have given high praise to the wines from Standish. The only downside to the wines is that our allocation of these wines are so small. So if you see some available on the website, then it’s your lucky chance to snap some up.
