The Relic Shiraz Blend 2018

Concentrated but not over extracted. Profound depth of super old vines speaking clearly. Almost another dimension of flavours. Big but complex. — a month ago

Hommage à Joep Dielen

Cuvée Reserve Old Vine Barossa Valley Shiraz 2013

This is HUGE.
Sweet macerated black fruit, dark chocolate, caramel macchiato, old aceto balsamico and incense are my first and most obvious impressions.
After awhile I also get some tiny whiffs of waxed antiques, damp earth and Pata Negra.
No wimpy wine! Especially made for Dielen’s Wine Shop in Venlo, NL by Dan Standish.

The Schubert Theorem Barossa Valley Shiraz

2019 again with WEA. Coffee/ vanilla nose and the tannins are crazy, I felt my mouth was covered in grape skins. Really inky / almost blueberry taste — 3 months ago

Single Vineyard Eden Valley Shiraz 2015

I'm assuming this is the Lamella. For me, this stood out among Dan's three wines. Exotic, with a good dose of spice. GW sums this up pretty well:

Hand-picked from the Stonegarden Vineyard (planted 1858) in the far south eastern hills of the Eden Valley. I’m not sure Eden Valley Shiraz gets much better than this. Black fruits, black pepper and exotic spice, sage and aromatic herbs, BBQ snags, floral top notes. Full bodied, incredible density and depth to the fruit, black fruits with a subtle mintiness, all that spice and mouth-perfume, then sheets of silky ultra-high pixel tannin, cool acidity, and superb length, with a cascade of nourishing tannin to farewell. Superb.

Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz

Had 2019 for WEA tasting. Smelled more floral/ light wood; tasted spicy upfront (more like Asian spice / pink peppercorn), red fruit, hay? Super long and intense tannins — 3 months ago

The Standish Red Blend 2001

Great wine. Nose of black berry syrup and vanilla. Loads of black fruit on the palate with cloves, vanilla and some earth. Full body with a long finish. — 4 years ago
