About The Wine

A benchmark Barossa Shiraz here from Dan Stanish. The 2016 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.

As Gary Walsh observed in his 96 point review, "It’s dark and charismatic. It’s long... It does the Barossa Valley proud."

This is a monumental wine. Small allocations available. Serious collectors of South Australia's finest red wines should not hesitate.

The Wine Front

"From Roennfeldt Road, Marananga, one of the more famous addresses in the Barossa Valley. It’s as black as a night with no moon in the Scottish Highlands, and I know this, because one night after quite a few whiskies I took it upon myself to go for a walk one cold winter’s night, and it took me quite some time to find my way back to the lodge… Anyway, I digress. Bold perfume of lavender and vanilla, sweet damp earth, blackberry and blueberry pie with toasted crust, liquorice and dark chocolate, perhaps some spice on that pie crust, too.  Full bodied, but fresh and vibrant, with blackberry flavour and acidity, a deep well of ripe open-weave grainy tannin, depth and intensity, rippling tannin thunders on the earthy and toasty finish. It’s dark and charismatic. It’s long. There’s some polish and finesse, yet it still feels wild and unfettered. It does the Barossa Valley proud. Laugh and think (and drink), this is Australia." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Every now and then we humble winegrowers receive a gift from the grape gods in the form of a perfect vintage growing season.
I feel that 2016 was precisely that, with a very dry winter and spring lead up to harvest and some serendipitous rainfall in late January.

As such, 2016 afforded the rare combination of rich palate filling wines of beautifully ripe tannins as well as the freshness of alluring graceful aromatics. Yielding four absolute standout parcels, certainly some of the best offerings I have ever seen from these particular vineyard sites.
