Description
 
The Standish Wine Company was created in 1999 when Dan Standish sourced a small parcel of old vine Shiraz from his parents’ vineyard in the heart of the Barossa Valley. The 96 year old vines are planted on the typical sand over clay soil profile which is characteristic of Vine Vale, the sub-region of the Barossa. With Dan's enormous passion for the wines of the Rhône Valley in the south of France, it was a natural evolution that the wines made would reflect their intrinsic style. As such, the second wine in the assemblage, The Relic, is a Shiraz and Viognier co-fermented wine, as made in Côte Rôtie.

The sensational 2002 Shiraz (from 89-year-old vines) offers up scents of roasted meats, beef broth, blackberries, and cassis liqueur. Its texture, sumptuous depth, and incredible richness and purity blew me away. Despite its huge size, it possesses tremendous equilibrium and definition. Drink this classic South Australian Shiraz over the next 10-15 years. If you love the wines of Torbreck, you’ll also find this wine totally compelling. Wine Advocate 95-98
