96 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für denErin Larkin zum The Standish 2020 Single Vineyard Shiraz Barossa Valley (Mai 2022):

The 2020 The Standish Shiraz was made with fruit from the Laycock family vineyard, in Greenock. The first vintage was 1999. This vintage saw 30% whole bunches in the ferment. It offers notes of red dirt, a bit of blood, salted heirloom tomato and satsuma plum. This is concentrated, compacted, plush, dense and muscular, with notes of ras el’hanout, allspice, torched cinnamon and salted Dutch licorice. This wine is like playing "Magic Eye." There’s a lot going on, but if you relax, a pattern emerges and the detail becomes obvious for all to see. Within the fine but plushly tannic frame, there is saltbush and bay leaf, exotic spice and cascading layers of berry fruits. The dirt in which the roots are entangled similarly shows its colors—and these are red, ochre, earth and dust. At first glance, the foolish and the rash will overlook this for being singularly muscular and full-bodied, but like all the best IYKYK (if you know, you know—wink wink) scenarios, there is far more than meets the palate here. Another blockbuster Standish.

 
The Standish 2019 Single Vineyard Shiraz Barossa Valley mit 98 Sucklingpunkten ausgezeichnet Die Tastingnote vom James Suckling (Oktober 2022):
 
Amazing aromas of metal shavings, cloves, spices, and black and blue fruits. Violets, too. Full-bodied with creamy tannins. Cured meat with iron earth. Almost slatey. Very sophisticated and classy. Drinkable, but this is one to age ideally for a minimum of five years. Try after 2027.

"Meisterhafte Darbietung von Liebe zum Detail und Sorgfalt" (Erin Larkin)

99 Sucklingpunkte für den Standish The Schubert Theorem 2020Tastingnote vom Oktober 2022 für den Standish The Schubert Theorem 2020:

Unbelievable! Another insane wine. The length of this is endless. The blue fruits and Asian spices are mind-blowing. It’s medium- to full-bodied with a mouth full of polished and refined, creamy tannins. It goes on for minutes. Endless. Seamless and gorgeous. Leave this for years ahead if you can keep your hands off it. Better after 2025.

 
98 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Standish The Schubert Theorem 2020Erin Larkin bewertet für den Wine Advocate (May 2022):

The 2020 The Schubert Theorem Shiraz was made with fruit from the Roennfeldt Road vineyard in Marananga, with 70% whole bunches in the ferment. This is the only cuvée in the collection that sees any inclusion of a different maturation vessel: the northeastern corner of the vineyard goes into concrete, because it retains the pure blue fruit characters that so define the wine. When one considers the dirt that is in this vineyard (and I ask you, without dirt, just where would we all be?), when one sees its black, shaley sparkle, one can get a sense of what to expect in the wine. It is always the black, brooding beast of the pack, but there is always—and I repeat, ALWAYS—a core of very pure fruit at its heart. This year is no different, and it is encased in fine but structuring tannin. It soars long across the palate, and yet within it, this wine is elegant and pliable. If the Lamella is the intriguing, pretty wine, and The Standish is the savory powerhouse, then The Relic is the iron fist–velvet glove... which makes this the enigma. I cannot overstate how attracted I am to the prowling, slinking nature of it. The tannins here—of all the wines—have a blueberry skin gravel to them; they are chalky and fine and a little bit gritty… excellent. This is a sensation, in every respect. A hot contender for best wine in the release this year.

99 Sucklingpunkte für den Standish The Relic 2020 Shiraz ViognierTastingnote vom Oktobe 2022 für den Standish The Relic 2020 Shiraz Viognier:

A pretty sensational wine with blackberry, grilled meat, dark chocolate, and licorice. Full-bodied and layered with righteous deep and poised tannins that coat the mouth. It goes on for minutes. Crushed stone, slate. Asian spice. Original vines planted in 1912. Drinkable, but better after three or four years. Try after 2025.

 
99 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Standish The Relic 2020 Shiraz ViognierErin Larkin im Mai 2022:

The 2020 The Relic Shiraz-Viognier is made with fruit from the Hongell family vineyard in Krondorf, with 15% to 20% whole bunches in the ferment and 1% Viognier skins co-fermented. This is the best I’ve seen it. There’s something about the combination of the hot year and the diminished yields—it has recoiled and recompressed the Viognier on top of and into the Shiraz and brought them into balance/harmony. Beneath its floral and stone fruit guiles is a pool of savory, muscular, red-dirt Shiraz. There is bacon fat and pure berry fruit and spice for days… I’ve recently looked at a previous vintage of this wine alongside an older but immaculate Chateau d’Ampuis, and while their origins were clear in the glass, the Relic proved an Australian perspective more than relevant. The balance between the varieties—and the classic push/pull of sweet and savory—is more harmonious this year than in any I can remember, and the only thing I am more excited about when I consider this wine is what I will say next year, through the lens of an excellent, cool and elegant year. What a fine pair they will make.

Rich and earthy. the blackberry-scented 2017 Windmill Block Single Vineyard Stonewell Shiraz is a full-bodied. full-throttle example of Barossa Shiraz. Open-knit and velvety on the palate. it's a dark-fruited wonder that drinks well already. yet it should age well for 10-15 years.

Shaw & Smith Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2018 je Flasche 28.50€
95
 
95 Sucklingpunkte für denVerkostungsnotiz James Suckling vom 02. Juli 2020:
Very attractive blueberries and dark plums here with earthy and spicy aromas, as well as black pepper. The palate is filled with fleshy fruit and has dark-cherry, cherry-liqueur and dark-chocolate flavors in abundance. Long flavors, plush smooth tannins and certainly a richer iteration of this wine. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Style: Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, in which balance is more important than power.
The 2018 vintage is defined by balance and effortless flow. It was a great season for Shiraz with generosity, but structure to match.

Season: Outstanding quality from a growing season that threatened, at times, to be tricky. After some heat in January, the moderate, dry and sunny months of February and March delivered beautifully balanced fruit. Crop levels were slightly below average, enhancing flavour and intensity.

Source: From low yielding vines predominantly at Balhannah in the central Adelaide Hills, and from Echunga and Macclesfield to the south.

Vinification: Hand picked and fermented as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches in open fermenters, with gentle plunging and minimal working. Aged in French oak for fourteen months, of which one third was new.

Glaetzer Amon Ra 2019 Shiraz Ben Glaetzer Barossa Valley
96+
 
Mit dem Amon Ra ist es Ben Glaetzer gelungen einen der besten Shirazrotweine Australiens zu kreieren. In der ägyptischen Mythologie ist der Amon Ra der Gott aller Götter. Auch wurde der erste geschichtlich erwähnte Weinbau an der Tempelanlage des Gottes Ra erwähnt, somit der Ursprung des Weinbaus. Die Shiraz Trauben stammen aus dem Ebenezer Distrikt im nördlichen Barossa Valley. Das Familenweigut der Familie Glaetzer konzentriert sich auf Reine Shiraz oder Shiraz Blends. Ben Glaetzer ist einer der talentiertesten und auch meist ausgezeichneten Winzer Australien. Zurecht geniesst der Amon Ra heute einen absoluten Kultstatus.

Ben Glaetzer ist der Winemaker für den Amon Ra 2019 ein spezielle Selection von Shiraz aus dem Ebenezer District im Barossa Valley.

 
96+ Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Glaetzer Amon Ra 2019 Shiraz Ben Glaetzer Barossa ValleyVerkostungsnotiz von Joe Czerwinski vom 31. August 2021:

The 2019 Amon Ra Shiraz is 100% Shiraz and 100% from the 2019 vintage, as Ben Glaetzer felt it—unlike many previous vintages—didn't need to be freshened with a small proportion of younger wine. From old vines in the Ebenezer district of the northern Barossa Valley, it offers classic notes of blackberries and spice, framed by hints of cedar and vanilla (it's aged in 100% new oak hogsheads, mostly French). It's full-bodied yet crisp, supple but tight and really long. Offering lovely dark fruit, hints of espresso and black olive, it finishes mouthwatering and firm. Give it some time in the cellar and drink it from 2025 – 2040.

McHenry Hohnen 2020 Burnside Vineyard Chardonnay Margaret River
97
97 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den McHenry Hohnen 2020 Burnside Vineyard Chardonnay Margaret RiverErin Larkin 07.07.2022

The warmer vintage here brings concentration, plushness and deliciousness into the mix. While the 2020 Burnside Vineyard Chardonnay doesn’t have all of the mineral detail that the 2019 does, it is incredibly vibrant. Very smart, people will love this. It has the phenolic chew and shape that bring drinking pleasure and add another dimension of experience. Burnside is generally my favorite vineyard in the trio of single-vineyard Chardonnays. 
 

Geschmacksnoten
Komplex und fluffig. Lemon Curd, Ruby Grapefruit und gegrillter Pfirsich weichen frischen Gebäckelementen. Wilde Gärung und längere Zeit auf der Hefe tragen zu einem köstlichen, würzigen Charakter am Gaumen bei, der sowohl kraftvoll als auch durch einen Rahmen aus natürlicher Säure definiert ist. Dieser Chardonnay stammt aus einem historischen Margaret River-Weingut am Flussufer und fängt den einzigartigen Charakter dieser einzigartigen Lage ein.

Weinberg
100 % Burnside-Weinberg. An der Biegung des Margaret River gelegen, wächst dieser alte Weinberg auf einzigartigen Glimmer- und Granitböden. Die Chardonnay-Reihen befinden sich an einem steilen Nordhang, der in Nordwest-Südost-Ausrichtung verläuft. Wein machen Handverlesen, ganze Traube gepresst und direkt auf Eichenholz mit vollem Feststoffgehalt übertragen. Von den einheimischen Jahren im Barrique vergoren (ca. 30% neu). Nach der Gärung bleiben die Fässer 4 Monate lang kühl, aber ungeschwefelt, um die autolytische Aktivität zu fördern. Batonnage alle zwei Wochen basierend auf Geschmack und partiellem MLF, um die hohe natürliche Säure dieses Jahrgangs auszugleichen. Der Wein wurde im Dezember mit voller Hefe in den Tank abgefüllt und verbrachte zwei Monate auf der Hefe im Tank, bevor er im Februar 2021 in Flaschen abgefüllt wurde.

Vintage-Bericht
Wir wurden 2020 in Margaret River mit nahezu perfekten Wachstumsbedingungen gesegnet. Ein Frühling, der wärmer als gewöhnlich ist, ein trockener, sonniger Sommer und kühle Nächte. Signifikante tägliche Temperaturschwankungen sorgten für perfekte Reifebedingungen in all unseren trocken gewachsenen Weinbergen. Keine Krankheiten und praktisch kein Vogeldruck (insbesondere zu Beginn der Ernte) bedeutete, dass wir schön saubere Früchte mit idealem Reife- und Geschmacksniveau pflücken konnten ... Ein wahrer Genuss für unser Winzerteam. Der einzige Nachteil waren die außergewöhnlich niedrigen Erträge bei allen Sorten. Unser trocken bewirtschafteter Weinberg reagierte auf die trockeneren saisonalen Bedingungen, indem er winzige und leichte Trauben mit kleinen Beeren produzierte. Dadurch hat die Frucht eine unglaubliche Konzentration und eine schöne natürliche Säure bewahrt.
