The 2003 Shiraz (100% Shiraz from a 90-year-old Vine Vale vineyard) was cropped at .5 tons of fruit per acre and was aged 32 months in old French oak. It is a magnificent effort boasting tremendous ripeness as well as abundant blueberry and creme de cassis notes intermixed with flowers graphite and crushed rocks. With amazing concentration purity and richness but no heaviness (the alcohol is only 14.5%) and a finish that lasts well past a minute it is accessible now but should age effortlessly for two decades or more. Dan Standish is one of the Barossa's up-and-coming superstars and his wines merit serious attention.
