Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz 2020

Whole bunch Shiraz, basket pressed, older French and American Oak. From the talented hands of Elena and Zar Brooks. 2021 has just been released but plenty of this about for sale.

Dandelion Vineyards, Lionheart of the Barossa, Shiraz, Barossa, 2020


Barossa signatures writ large: plum and choc with gun flint. Throw in some fruit cake and nutmeg spice with a little umami-soy note and pink pepper corns. Chewy and ropey tannins under good layers of plump berry fruit and a decent length. Clean, with fine varietal and regional expression.  Good but missing a bit of X Factor.  

RRP: $30
Alc: 14.5%
Rating:17.5/20 (90/100)
