Lionheart of the Barossa, Shiraz, Dandelion Vineyard

Lionheart of the Barossa, Shiraz, Dandelion Vineyard

Grapes are from an old vine vineyard in the Barossa with vines over a hundred years old, many on original rootstock. Throughout their vineyards Dandelion Vineyards encourage the humble dandelion amongst the vines as they suppress winter weeds and provide mulch in summer.  The Lionheart is named after Barossa's lifelong champion of old vines - Carl Lindner. 

In our very large glass : damson plums and reduced plums and plum jam made yesterday morning and, oh, plum chutney too. All of this plummy aromaticity is set off by other primary fruit drivers: olives, bay, the more freshly picked woody herbs such as sage and rosemary and thyme. The bouquet whispers of dark liqueur chocolate, cocoa and vanilla.

And on the palate : here is a ripe yet restrained profile of fruit purity; the palate is clean, clear and defined - etched minerality and savouriness runs in fine powdery tannic layers. This is Barossa that is beautiful not brazen; beguiling not boisterous; a balance not a bomb, yet still indubitably - Barossa.
