Standish Wine Co The Schubert Theorem - Barossa Valley

Vintage: 2015 Region: South Australia
Type: Reds
Winery: Standish Wine Company
Tasting Notes:

100% Shiraz - Sourced from various sections of the Schubert Vineyard - Roennfeldt Road, Marananga. Planted on own roots between 1994 & 1999 (12ft x 8ft spacing). The soils are deep red/brown earths with eroded protrusions of crystalline quartz - ranging between 272-296m above sea level.

The Schubert Theorem lies within a branch of mathematics known as 'knot theory'. It states that any knot can be uniquely decomposed as the connected sum of prime knots. Aptly named, this wine deconstructs the Schubert family vineyard into its distinct sections, taking the finest elements of each, re-assembling to connect and enhance their strengths.

If this isn't some of the sexiest packaging in the known wine universe I don't know what is. Black embossed 'theorem' notations sit on a shiny black label. The back label a bare minimum of information and a punt deeper than a black hole. I feel fancy holding it. Cue the Gregorian chants.

Standish's wines are from the classic 'no-compromise' school of winemaking with infinitesimal attention to detail yet a fluid sense of vins de terroir. This bad boy is sourced from the Schubert Vineyard in Marananga, and set on deep reddy-brown earth with quartz jutting out of it. The Schubert Theorem, by-the-by, 'lies within the branch of mathematics known as 'knot theory", for those that are concerned.

A 6th generation Barossan, Dan Standish established his eponymous winery in 1999 whilst still working as winemaker at Torbreck Vintners. His endeavour initially began around an ancient parcel of Shiraz owned and farmed by his father. Due to family upheaval this source is now gone but has been supplemented by various sites throughout the Barossa Region that he has identified as significant and unique.

All batches of fruit are fermented and matured individually then follows a strict selection in the winery that can see as much as 80% of the original blend discarded and sold off in bulk. As with the finest producers in Europe only the finest material is sold under the Standish Wine Company label.

Stylistically Dan's wines are as rich and profound as you would expect from Barossa Valley old vines but they have a satin texture and dreamy perfume that sets them far apart from his contemporaries. Here, dark fruits are encased in cocoa and earthy richness but with gentle spice, soil tone, asphalt and a stony minerality that gives the wines a beautiful dimension. These are special Australian wines.
