Standish Schubert Theorem 2020 (75 cl)
Shiraz
Australia

Average critic rating: 97,8

Parker : 98   Stuart Mc Closkey : 98-100   The Wine Front : 96+

A myth: Dan Standish is Australia's most talented winemaker and since 2016 his wines have been simply the best Australian wines on par with Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace, which cost 5-6 times more.


A full-bodied, rich, powerful and structured wine. It must be put in the cellar for several years to round off. 

an intense nose on blue fruits, blackcurrant, liquorice, exotic spices, chocolate, star anise, graphite and a pronounced touch of minerality. 

On the palate, the wine is velvety and powerful and we find blueberry, dark fruit and chocolate and espresso. The wine has a construction of great complexity. The finish is long and fresh on blood orange.

To be enjoyed with a game bird, a lamb shank or a rib of beef.

 

Robert Parker : 98/100 

Shiraz The Schubert Theorem 2020 was made with fruit from the Roennfeldt Road vineyard in Marananga, with 70% whole bunches in the ferment. It is the only cuvée in the collection that sees the inclusion of a different maturation vessel: the northeast corner of the vineyard goes into the concrete, as it retains the pure blue fruit characters that define the wine so well. When you consider the land that lies in this vineyard (and I ask you, without land, where would we be?), when you see its black, schistous sheen, you can get an idea of what we can wait for wine. It's still the dark, menacing beast of the bunch, but there's still - and I repeat, ALWAYS - a very pure kernel of fruit at its heart. This year is no different, and it is enveloped in fine but structuring tannins. It soars long on the palate, yet on the inside this wine is elegant and supple. If the Lamella is the intriguing pretty wine, and the Standish the savory power, then the Relic is the velvet glove and the iron fist...which makes it an enigma. I can't overemphasize the attraction I feel for his prowling, elusive nature. The tannins - of all the wines - have a blueberry skin texture; they are chalky, thin and a bit grainy... excellent. It's a sensation, in every way. A serious contender for this year's best wine.

Stuart Mc Closkey : 98-100/100

Even after 72 hours in a carafe, the bouquet is a tough kitten to crack, or so I don't have the vocabulary to do it justice. A wildly black color with an aubergine edge. Cassis pastille, darkest licorice, black olive, exotic and sweet spices, blackberry cream, cassis, smoky minerality, chocolate (90% of types), spicy fruit cake, star anise, espresso and successive layers of refreshing graphite. Like Lamella, this wine is a skyscraper whose structural mass and integrity will allow it to hold its own for at least thirty years. It will take at least a decade to show some development - 15-20 years is more likely. Extraordinarily deep - bottomless to be precise, but full of energy. Once again I am drawn to the smooth, velvety feel of Schubert's Theorem. Its richness and power are simply breathtaking, as is its grace, which might seem insane given the density and concentration of the wine. Dark, exotic flavors sweep across the palate, with chocolate, espresso and a hint of leather. I love the violet pastille, the spice cake and the savory herbs. The finish is endless, but flows to the rhythm of blood orange... The depth of the fruit shapes the wine while the firm tannins frame it. The most structured Schubert Theorem I have ever tasted. Served in Zalto burgundy glasses.

The Wine Front : 96+/100 

Ooh. A lovely bar of chocolate and hazelnuts, blueberry and blackberry, spicy too, which is rather unusual for Roenfeldt, and perhaps a hallmark of the vintage. Lots of tannins, a bit chewy and firm, tea flavor and aroma too, really quite sticky to the touch, but ample fruit flavor, lots of perfume on the palate, blueberry richness again, and a grip iron tannins to conclude on a long and fresh finish. This is a powerful wine, which will need several years to blossom. Exotic spices punctuate the finish. wow. It is intense and firm.

Pinot Lorem is very painful, it will be followed by a doctor, but it will happen at the same time as a lot of work and pain. For to come to the smallest detail, no one should practice any kind of work unless he derives some benefit from it. Do not be angry with the pain in the reprimand in the pleasure he wants to be a hair from the pain in the hope that there is no breeding. Unless they are blinded by lust, they do not come out; they are in fault who abandon their duties and soften their hearts, that is toil. It's important to take care of yourself.
