Description of Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart Of The Barossa Shiraz 2018

Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart Of The Barossa Shiraz 2018 (Shiraz)


  • View: Nightly dark yet bright as if draped in a violet-plum moonshine.
  • Nose: Damson plums and reduced plums and plum jam made yesterday morning and, oh, plum chutney too. All of this plummy aromaticity is set off by other primary fruit drivers: olives, bay, the more freshly picked woody herbs such as sage and rosemary and thyme. The bouquet whispers of dark liqueur chocolate, cocoa and vanilla.
  • Mouth: Here is a ripe yet restrained profile of fruit purity; the palate is clean, clear and defined - etched minerality and savouriness runs in fine powdery tannic layers. This is Barossa that is beautiful not brazen; beguiling not boisterous; a balance not a bomb, yet still indubitably - indubitably - Barossa.

APPELLATION: Barossa Valley (Australia).

VINEYARD: Lionheart.

GRAPES: 100% Shiraz.

AGEING: After 18 months maturation and a racking in French oak, Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz 2018 was bottled without filtration or fining, to capture the essence of the vineyard.

PREPARATION: In the last week of April 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 some new but predominantly older French Oak Barriques to finish fermentation.

WINE PAIRING: This red wine's minerality, acidity and fruit depth make it extremely versatile with foods: from char siu pork, mature hard cheeses, chargrilled chicken, a simple pepper steak, beef in a black bean sauce, to sausages with a hint of chilli.

ALCOHOL: 14.5%

- Intense crimson with youthful purple hues.
- Lifted blue fruits, blood plum, ripe blackberries and Christmas pudding-like spice flow out of the glass with spicy pepper, and hints of bramble and dark chocolate.
- Generous mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice.
- Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolaty nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with a youthful finish.

The raspberry aromas are quite present. I noticed a kind of salty aftertaste in the finish.
If you like wood-flavoured wines, this is perfect.

It had a wonderful aroma of cherry and red fruit. I liked the acidity of 2013.
From Dandelion Vineyards it is the best I've drunk.
