- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Dan Standish is one of the most outstanding young Barossan producers in the game today. His premium offerings rank amongst the rarest and most hotly sort after Barossa wines for collectors in the know. After learning his trade at Torbreck, his exploits under his own label have rightfully generated sensational press. The Schubert Theorem Shiraz is a reconstruction of the best parcels of Shiraz from the Schubert family vineyard in Marananga. Each batch of fruit is meticulously fermented seperately then reassembelled in a final blend to represent the very best this old vine plot has to offer. If you want the best of the Barossa in your cellar, Standish is a must.
What it Tastes Like
Hits you front on, this does. The nose is densely populated with notes of black fruit, black soil, black pepper. It's dark and brooding and effortlessly powerful. The opulence of the fruit conquers every cavity of the mouth. Layers of thick-set, inky fruit, ropes of sinewy tannins with a crunchy minerality gives precise definition and drive. Earth shattering boom comes through the finish. Barossa Shiraz at its most seductive and impressive. A wine of magnitude and class. Woah.
100% Shiraz - Sourced from various sections of the Schubert Vineyard - Roennfeldt Road, Marananga. Planted on own roots between 1994 & 1999 (12ft x 8ft spacing). The soils are deep red/brown earths with eroded protrusions of crystalline quartz - ranging between 272-296m 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, re-assembling to connect and enhance their strengths.
Bottle Size: 750ml
About the Producer
Standish Wine Company
Dan Standish is one of the most outstanding young Barossa producers in the game today.
His premium offerings rank amongst the rarest and most hotly sort after Barossa wines for collectors in the know. After learning his trade at Torbreck, his exploits under his own label have rightfully generated sensational press. Stylish, seductive and devastating, the Standish wines are Barossa wines with unmistakable X-Factor.
The Barossa has a big reputation. Big in every sense of the word. Known for producing blockbusting examples of impenetrable old vine Shiraz and Grenache envied by much of the world, it is a region that should be celebrated as the region that first put Australian wine on the map. Now, with a new generation of winemakers reinventing the region, there’s more than just power in the Barossa’s bag of tricks. With a move toward picking earlier and pulling back on oak maturation, there’s a fresher, more subtle side to Barossa wine which offers plenty to the modern Australian wine lover.
Long held up to the rest of the world as Australia’s flagship red variety, the mighty Australian Shiraz has undergone something of a renaissance over the past two decades. While our robust styles of Shiraz from powerhouse South Australian regions such as the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale may have put Australian wine on the map, Shiraz from our cooler regions are giving the variety a new look. Wines from Canberra, all parts of Victoria, the Adelaide Hills, and the Great Southern, are all delivering wines of finesse and spice set to a lighter framework. The tapestry of Australian Shiraz is richly diverse, and will only continue to develop and mature into the future.
