Standish The Relic Shiraz Viognier 2004 Imperial 6L, Barossa Valley

$1,000.00

Following a highly successful 2003 vintage, the 2004 Standish The Relic Shiraz Viognier was one point shy of scoring a perfect 100 from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Sourced from 92 year old vines in the Barossa Valley, the 2004 vintage will continue to impress beyond 2020.

Expert Reviews


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 99 pts - More exotic and flamboyant than the Shiraz, but equally profound is the 2004 Shiraz/Viognier The Relic (93% and 7% respectively, cropped at .5 tons of fruit per acre, and aged 20 months in old French oak). An inky/purple-colored, powerful, full-bodied, rich red, it possesses a huge, sweet nose of blue and black fruits, flowers, and subtle oak, a blockbuster mid-section, and an amazingly long finish. More approachable than the 2003 Shiraz, it can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years. - Oct 2006

James Halliday's Wine Companion - 93 pts - A brooding monster of a wine! Incredibly concentrated, powerful and intense, with fruitcake spice enveloping a massive core of fruit; the palate is almost syrupy, and so rich that a great deal of time will be needed to see this wine come around; if in fact it ever does. Date tasted 5 Mar 2008, drink by 2030
