2022 Standish Wine Co The Relic Shiraz Viognier Barossa Valley

From: $135.00

2022 Standish Wine Co The Relic Shiraz Viognier Barossa Valley – Hongell Family Vineyard, Krondorf, 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier. Planted on own roots in 1912 (7.6 Hectares – 12ft x 10ft spacing). Fine white sand over deep heavy red clay at 302m above sea level.

Blessed with a long cool ripening season each of these 2022 Shiraz’s are unabashedly Barossa but more intricately reveal a distinct sense of place in which the vines inhabit. An outstanding vintage to showcase the intimate temperaments within their special part of the world.

Standish’s bright, luscious Shiraz’s each reveal refined, multi-layers of graceful tannin; fleshy and distinguished. While unmistakably Barossan, this vintage carries an elegance akin to a Northern Rhone offering – an atypical shift resulting from a more modest variation of our renowned ‘blow-dry’ summer heat.

Power and structure are interwoven impeccably here. The small amount of Viognier play such a major part in this wine (only 2%). Expect notes of red and blue berries, dark plums, florals and spicy complexity. Definitely not the heaviest of Standish releases but extremely well made. Drinking well already but can’t wait to see it with a few or more years (10+ years) under its belt.

This could be one of Australia’s Best examples of the Shiraz Viognier blend.
