Description

Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz

Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz is intense crimson with youthful and purple hues.

Lifted blue fruits of blood plum and ripe blackberries. Plus Christmas pudding-like spice flow out of the glass as well as spicy pepper and hints of bramble and dark chocolate.

Generous mouth-filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate, lashings of sweet spice.

Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolaty nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with youthful finish.

Grapes are from an old vine vineyard in the Barossa with vines over a hundred years old, and many on original rootstock.

Throughout their vineyards they encourage the humble dandelion amongst the vines, they suppress winter weeds and provide mulch in summer.

In the first week of March whole bunches of Shiraz were hand harvested.

Then, gently crushed and naturally fermented in open fermenters for eight days.

Hand plunged twice a day, before careful basket pressing into new and older French Oak Barriques to finish fermentation.

In conclusion, after 18 months maturation and a racking in the same oak, we bottled our Lionheart vineyard without filtration and fining.

This is especially to capture the essence of Carl’s vines, and to respect their terroir.

Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart is ready to drink and will reward cellaring and decanting.

The Producers

Zar Brooks and his winemaker wife Elena have teamed up with vignerons Brad Rey and Carl Lindner to produce a range of wines from their favourite vineyards in key regions in South Australia. Their aim is to nurture the character of the vineyards and express the terroir in the wines. As James Halliday states in his 2011 Australian Wine Companion, “It may be a dauntingly competitive marketplace, but there can be few more promising new ventures than this one”.

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
