Dandelion Vineyards Lion’s Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019

The 2020 of this has just been released and dutifully won Elena and Zar Brooks the title of Bushing Monarch!

Dandelion Vineyards, Lion’s Tooth of McLaren Vale, Shiraz/Riesling , McLaren Vale, 2019


Leafy greengage underscoring satsuma plum, light charry oak, intense licorice and a deep base of earthy tyre rubber (I find this in McLaren Vale sometimes) with milk choc oak. Silky and supple palate with plenty of plum, chocolate with a tight berry profile. The bright lift from the Riesling provides a fine cut through the finish long flavour tail. Plush, easy and crunchy through the finish.

RRP: $40
Alc: 14.5%
Rating:18./20 (92/100)
