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 which are costing 5-6 times as much.

Raspberry, blackberry, orange zest, green tea, liquorice, mocha, dark chocolate, oak: no, it's not a Prévert-style litany but a wonderful olfactory harmony, perfectly balanced and balanced.

The palate is smooth, creamy and full-bodied with its fresh and juicy black fruits, embellished with licorice and a stony touch. The finish is interminable, elegant and highlights the satiny tannins.

A wonder from start to finish!

 

Enjoy with game birds, lamb shanks or prime rib.

 

Robert Parker: 98-100/100 

The “The Standish Shiraz 2018” (a sample of cask blend) is a bit full-bodied (around 50% of the whole bunch), but it is beautifully fragrant, with notes of herbal tea, raspberry, blackberry and licorice. It exudes a certain complexity, while being full-bodied, mellow and creamy, with a long and elegant finish. This seamless beauty is a candidate for perfection.

James Suckling: 98/100

Greenock plot with a ferrous stone base and a lot of ferrous stone in the ground. This wine is super complex and fragrant with some orange zest, intense raspberries and blackberries and an almost Rhone blood orange edge. There is a deeply spicy frame, led by the oak, which suits the aromas of blackberries and dark chocolate. The wine is pure, polished and bright, with a very intense and concentrated expression of blackberries and dark plums. So polished and silky, powerful and graceful. The texture is luxurious and has such an underlying power. To drink or to keep.

Decant: 97/100

The acid and tannic structure is asserted at the beginning, but it assembles with time and air. The intense, juicy and creamy fruits of raspberry, damson and blackberry combine with spices, mint, mocha and undertones of charcuterie and earth. From the Laycock family vineyard in Greenock, planted in 2002 on gravel and iron shale on a substrate of red clay and iron stone.

The Wine Front: 97/100 

Laycock Family Vineyard, Parbs Road, Greenock. I went through the five releases of 2018, pouring a small glass, swallowing, just to get an instant glimpse of the relative quality. This is a technique that is most often useful for getting a first impression. And for the most part, first impressions are very important. This one and the Lamella immediately jumped out at me. A whole bunch share, which works very well.

A spicy black fruit, dark and enveloping, but which finds its way into the mouth as surely as a cat in the night. Black licorice, freshly picked blackberries and Boysenberries, deep but not lacking in energy and freshness, the tannins have a fine texture of chalk powder; the green tea scent adds a bit of spice, and the finish is so long, stony and luminous. It is a spectacle of beauty from start to finish.
