Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz

2015

In a Nutshell

Generous and warming Barossa Shiraz.

Tasting Notes

Intense crimson with youthful purple hues. Lifted blue fruits of blood plum and ripe blackberries along with 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 with lashings of sweet spice. Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolaty nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with youthful finish.

Production Notes

Whole bunches were gently crushed and naturally fermented in open fermenters for eight days, hand plunged twice a day, before careful basket pressing into new (25%) and older French oak barriques to finish fermentation. After 18 months maturation and a racking in the same oak, the wine was bottled without filtration or fining, to capture the essence of the vines.
