About The Wine

A benchmark Barossa Shiraz here from Dan Stanish. The Schubert Theorem Shiraz comes from an east-facing vineyard in Maranaga.

The fruit of these ancient Barossa Valley vines was brought to bottle with the help of concrete eggs and judicious French oak seasoning. This is a wine that showcases the mighty power of the Barossa Valley with flawless control.

This is a monumental wine. A brooding, luscious, velvety Shiraz that floods every crevice in the mouth.

Small allocations available. Serious collectors of South Australia's finest red wines should not hesitate.

From The Producer

I'm thrilled to release my 2018 Single Vineyard offerings, the 20th vintage from The Standish Wine Company.

The 2018 harvest saw arguably the best growing and ripening season I have seen in my couple of decades making wine. Above average rainfall in Winter helped boost canopy growth in Spring, followed by a prolonged "Indian Summer" well into April. The perfect recipe for small berries and concentrated grape flavours. This has given us the opportunity to bottle our usual range of cuvées as well as an old favourite Andelmonde, from Shiraz grown around the winery right here in Light Pass.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
ABV : 14.90%

Drink Until : 2041

Critic Reviews

96Points
The Wine Advocate

96 - 98 points - "Mint, sage and thyme accent blackberry and black cherry fruit in the 2018 The Schubert Theorem Shiraz. Full-bodied and rich without being heavy, it finishes tremendously long, with silky, cocoa-powder-like tannins. It should drink well for a couple of decades." - Joe Czerwinski (The Wine Advocate)

96Points
The Wine Front

"It’s perhaps the most rugged and firm of the 2018 Standish releases, through I love it for that all the same. Lavish sticky, almost sandy open-weave tannin, saline, black cherries, a sage and mint perfume, plenty of crunch and energy, dried herb and black olive, roast beef, grip and length on a long cool finish. Feels ‘mineral’, savoury, and has a compact essence-like quality. No doubt it’s a beauty. Tightly packed and in need of cellaring." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
