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 2003 Shiraz (100% Shiraz from a 90-year-old Vine Vale vineyard) was cropped at .5 tons of fruit per acre, and was aged 32 months in old French oak. It is a magnificent effort boasting tremendous ripeness as well as abundant blueberry and creme de cassis notes intermixed with flowers, graphite, and crushed rocks. With amazing concentration, purity, and richness, but no heaviness (the alcohol is only 14.5%), and a finish that lasts well past a minute, it is accessible now, but should age effortlessly for two decades or more.
