The Standish Wine Company Shiraz Barossa Valley Single Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This 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.

WA 96pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: The fruit for the 2005 Shiraz came from nearly 100 year old vines and spent 36 months in seasoned French barriques. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is vibrant and floral at this stage with notes of chocolate, creme de cassis, game, mint and anise. The palate is fine and complex, with a good backbone of high acid, medium level of fine-grained tannins and a long harmonious finish. It s drinking now and should continue to do so until 2020+ Winemaker Notes - The Standish Wine Company was created in 1999 when Ex-Torbreck Winemaker Dan sourced a small parcel of Old Vine Shiraz from his parent s vineyard in the heart of the Barossa Valley. The 96-year old vines are planted on the typical sand over clay soil profile characteristic of the Vine Vale sub-region of the Barossa. Standish Shiraz is crafted from this 96-year old block of dry grown, organically farmed Shiraz.
