Stuart McCloskey "I am an enthusiastic admirer of Standish wines. I have purchased and sampled Aussie wines for almost 30 years and openly declare the ‘Standish’ collection as the best Shiraz produced in Australia. They are superior to wines being produced at Torbreck (Run Rig), Penfolds (Grange and special bins) and Clarendon Hills (Astralis). For me, Standish wines represent the very best Shiraz coming out of Australia. In terms of value; no one comes close!"

2018 The Standish - 98-100 Points - Joe Czerwinski ( “The 2018 The Standish Shiraz (a sample blend from barrel) is a bit stalky (it's about 50% whole cluster), but it's gorgeously perfumed, with hints of herbal tea, raspberries, blackberries and licorice. It just exudes complexity, while also being full-bodied, plush and creamy, with a long, elegant finish. This seamless beauty is a candidate for perfection”.

2018 Lamella - 98-100 Points - Joe Czerwinski ( “Another potentially perfect wine, the 2018 Lamella Shiraz, from the Eden Valley, is full-bodied and velvety in texture. Offering swirls of complex mixed berries, tea and spice, it finishes long and tannic, with plenty of backbone and structure, plus intriguing hints of espresso and chocolate. In contrast to The Standish, it's more impressive, while The Standish is more opulent and generous”

2018 The Relic - 96-99 Points - Joe Czerwinski ( “Despite being only 2% Viognier, in its current state, Standish's 2018 The Relic Shiraz-Viognier shows prominent notes of stone fruit and spice, plus the blackberries and blueberries of the Shiraz. Full-bodied, lush and creamy-textured, with a long, silky finish, this beauty should drink well for a couple of decades after its release next year”

2018 The Schubert Theorem - 96-98 Points - Joe Czerwinski ( “Mint, sage and thyme accent blackberry and black cherry fruit in the 2018 The Schubert Theorem Shiraz. Full-bodied and rich without being heavy, it finishes tremendously long, with silky, cocoa-powder-like tannins. It should drink well for a couple of decades”
