Standish Wine Co. The Relic 2016
'Fragrantly scented, taughtly structured and finely poised – this femme fatale represents the more reserved face of the Barossa. Delicately portioned and beautifully balanced its fragrant notes of acacia petal, crème de cassis and parfait amour are supported by an underlying swath of Szechuan pepper, Guatemalan cocoa, and damp limestone. Supple, lithe and without any hint of ‘palate drag’, its youthful ease shouldn’t detract from the sea of promise it holds for the future.'
