2007 borne bollene, the standish wine company, barossa valley

Why We're Buying

The Standish is a wine decades in the making. The shiraz comes from 45-year-old vines in the Eden Valley, then ages in French Burgundy barriques for two years. With a full-body and cabernet-esque notes, The Standish serves as a high watermark of Borne Bollene.

Vinous

blackberry, blueberry, olive tapenade, incense & smoked meat. Deep, sappy & pure, exotic... outstanding clarity and thrust... extremely impressive wine offers the energy and pungency of a high-end northern Rhone red.
