15% whole bunch and 1% Viognier added in 2019 - From Krondorf in the centre of the Valley. Gorgeous as ever, the Relic in 2019 is every bit the counterpart to The Standish. Overflowing with attraction as a young wine it is very exuberant on the nose with attractive floral notes and blue tinged fruit; juicy and silky in the mouth it is exceptionally long and vibrant with a silky and vibrant finish; this is the wine to enjoy in youth, though as always, it will gain in complexity with time - very hard to keep hands off now though!

(2018 vintage) Despite being only 2% Viognier, Standish's 2018 The Relic Shiraz-Viognier shows prominent notes of stone fruit and spice, plus the blackberries and blueberries of the Shiraz. Full-bodied, lush and creamy-textured, with a long, silky finish, this beauty should drink well for a couple of decades after its release.
