2016 The Standish Wine Company Shiraz The Standish

See wine details

The Standish Shiraz is a single vineyard wine sourced from old vine Greenock vineyard on ironstone soils. – 100% Shiraz – Sourced from the Laycock Vineyard – Parbs Road, Greenock, Barossa Valley Planted on own roots in 2002 (1.39 Hectare – 9ft x 6ft spacing) Ironstone gravels and schist over dark red clays at 314m above sea level.

“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.”

Dan Standish, winemaker.
