Standish The Standish Shiraz 2020
The dry-grown, organically farmed The Standish Single Vineyard Shiraz derives from the western edge of the Barossa Valley. Careful hand selection of fruit and traditional vinification – including foot stomping – is followed by maturation in new (20%) and older French oak.
Dense, latent and strapping, this flaunts the flawless purity that can be leached from the famed sandy flints of Vine Vale. Tightly wound with its cards close to the vest, deep-set aromatics of coal, pressed currant and black truffle are foiled by redolent tones of tilled soil, beef broth and slow roasted meats. Dark and brooding with immense concentration, persistence and energy it is somewhat of a heroic style but is gently laced with a long fine cloak of silken tannin. More reticent than its stable mate, it shows wonderful staying power for those with immense patience and cool, dark cellars.
