Dandelion Vineyards, Lioness of McLaren Vale, Shiraz , McLaren Vale, 2020


Deep ruby to garnet hue. Warming baking spices over nutmeg and choc/nut McLaren Vale signatures with plenty of blue plum flesh and creamy oak. Oak spice over a medium framed and linear palate. Some rhythm to the flow with bright fruit and a firm tannins and a neat, clean finish. Just missing a little flesh on the bones.

Rating:17.5/20 (90/100)
