    May 20, 2022 - 94-95 Amazing wine, as everyone describes. No formal notes, very hedonistic and perfumed. Rich mouthfeel loaded with pure fruit, black and blue. The best Australian Shiraz I have tried that combines elegance with 'opulence'.

    April 4, 2022 - Impenetrable glowing purple/black colour. Stunning really. Dark fruits - blackberry, dark cherry, blueberrry, dutch licorice, dark chocolate, gravelly acidity, sandy tannins. The depth and length are quite profound. It's so intensely and deeply flavoured but like all great wines its never heavy or hard. Probably underscoring this, that's how good it is.

    March 12, 2022 - Ah The Standish. I don’t think there’s a better Shiraz out there, except for maybe Rockford, but that’s another style altogether. Black in the glass. Big red/black fruit appear after 4 hours of decanting (don’t think about drinking this without it). Oak spices, earth, roasted nuts in the background. Huge concentration - it’s like drinking the ripest berries in liquid form. Phenomenal balance of all things. Crazy good. Goes down fast, but is a silent killer with its 15% abv.

    March 10, 2022 - I had hoped that this would be a perfect pairing for Franklin barbecue. The barbecue was perfect, but the wine was very tight upon opening and excellent, but not life changing, after two hours. More complex than opulent IMO. Consensus was to age at least another five years, which I plan to do for my other bottles.

    April 9, 2021 - Love it - I can definitely smell the whole bunch aspect, can't say it's a flavour I love but there's plenty of other goodness in there... the palate is amazing, so rich and decantant... and one of the longest lengths I've ever experienced. Wow! This has totally destroyed my palate for the evening in a good way.
