2021 SHIRAZ, Lionheart, Dandelion Vineyards. Barossa, S.Aus

Bin:  550

Alcohol percentage:  14.5%

Vegan

Area:

The Barossa, not far from Adelaide, is probably Australia’s most renowned red wine region, famous for its powerful and long-lived Shiraz. This wine is made from 100 year old vines.

Grape variety:

100% Shiraz, matured for 18 months in French oak (with a small proportion of new barrels).

Producer:

Dandelion is a relatively new venture set up by winemaker Elena Brooks and her husband Zar, with help from growers Brad Rey and Carl Lindner to produce a range of wines from their favourite vineyards.

Nick Stock, one of Australia’s leading journalists, has described Dandelion as follows: “Brooks has teamed up with his winemaking wife Elena, a woman whose talents are outweighed only by her tolerance, in an exciting new venture called Dandelion Vineyards. The approach is remarkably simple and sees Elena making wine from a suite of beautiful old vineyards across that blessed curve that runs from the Barossa, up through the Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills and down into McLaren Vale.”

Old Bridge rating:

Remarkably fresh and lively considering both the origin and the richness of fruit. A spicy, bright, food-friendly style.
