What the critics say:

 

96 | Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski

Lifted, herbal notes of mint, thyme and sage appear on the nose of the 2017 The Standish Shiraz. They're followed by waves of raspberries and more raspberries, fleshing out the full-bodied palate and lingering onto the long, silky finish, where they're joined by savory roasted-meat and espresso notes. While almost approachable now, a few years in the cellar surely wouldn't hurt.

 

96 | Decanter, Sarah Ahmed

Restrained on the nose with imposing backbone to the raspberry-dominated palate. Bitter chocolate and espresso oak tones and earthy, herbal whole-bunch accents give resonance to the spicy back-palate that’s a touch chewy on the finish. Grainy, textural tannins and fresh acidity underpin the tightly wound fruit. Could warrant a higher score with time.Drinking Window 2021 - 2040

 

The Standish Wine Company

"In the context of Australian shiraz, the Standish wines are continually regarded as being exceptionally high quality—among the very best"

- Erin Larkin, Wine Advocate

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.
