Standish Schubert Theorem 2018 (75 cl)
Shiraz
Australia

Average review score: 98,0

Suckling: 100   Decant: 98   Parker: 96-98   The Wine Front: 96+

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


A full-bodied, rich and powerful wine that is never heavy. It must be cellared for two years to round off. 

The intense nose covers the entire color palette with yellow, red, blue, purple and black fruits: dark peach, strawberry, raspberry, plum, blueberry, blackberry, cherry. There are added spicy notes of oak, vegetal with mint and a more "mineral" touch with flint and seaweed.

In the mouth, the intensity of the aromas is breathtaking and we find blackberry, plum, black cherries to which are added sage, mint and an exquisite salinity. The wine is of an almost confusing complexity; it is bursting with energy while being silky with sumptuous tannins and a fresh finish thanks to a perfectly balanced acid line.

Enjoy with game birds, lamb shanks or prime rib.

 

James Suckling: 100/100 

Micaceous soil from the Schubert vineyard in Roenfeldt Road, Marananga and 50% fermented in whole bunches. The site has six parts and all are made in one plot, then the wine is blended. The fruit is of particular complexity, with all the nuances of red, blue and purple to black. There are also ripe and dark peaches and nectarines. There is also a spicy hint, with hints of almost flint graphite. The palate is of such intensity and power that the very long and deep black fruits develop on the finish. Impeccable depth of tannin here. Rich flavors of blood plum interspersed with blackberries. A flavor so saturated, so long and full of energy. The vinous intensity of the finish is spectacular. It's something really special. Try from 2024.

Decant: 98/100

A masterful blend of six sections of the Schubert vineyard in Marananga, planted between 1994 and 1999, facing east. Intensely fragrant black and blue fruits, black cherries, malted oak and mocha, seaweed and truffles - an exquisite savory complexity. Fine graphite tannins and persistent acidity refine the finish.

Parker: 96-98 / 100

Mint, sage and thyme underline blackberry and black cherry in the 2018 Schubert Shiraz Theorem. Full-bodied and rich without being heavy, it ends on an incredible length, with silky tannins, similar to those of the powder of cocoa. It should be good to drink for about 20 years.

The Wine Front: 96 + / 100 

Roennfeldt Road, Marananga.

This might be the toughest and firmest Standish of 2018, but I love it for it. Sumptuous tannins, sticky, almost sandy, open-weave, saline, black cherries, a scent of sage and mint, lots of crunch and energy, dried herbs and black olive, roast beef, hold and length on a long, fresh finish. It is mineral and tasty. There is no doubt that she is a beauty. It is very compact and needs to be cellared.
