Standish Andelmonde Shiraz

Barossa Valley, South Australia

Liquefied earth, spiced minerals and sundrenched ironstone are precociously bound with taut flavours of crème de mure, smoked cedar and roasted herbs. More akin to a focused young wine of Graves than its namesake’s home in the Northern Rhone, Andelmonde’s tightfisted youth will require many years of serenity before realizing its pinnacle.
