Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz

2016

In a Nutshell

Generous and warming Barossa Shiraz.

Tasting Notes

This Shiraz has an intense crimson colour with youthful purple hues. Generous, mouth-filling sweet blackberries, raspberries and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice. Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolatey nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with a youthful finish.

Production Notes

Whole bunches were gently crushed and naturally fermented in open fermenters for eight days. The cap was hand plunged twice a day before the fruit was carefully pressed off the skins using a basket press. The must was then racked 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.
