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.
The 2019 vintage has a nose of freshly shaved dark and bitter chocolate and also dark liqueur chocolate aromas; then from the field come laurel leaves, sage still soft not hard, lemon thyme, aniseed, fresh black pepper, and raspberries and blueberries just coated by a morning rain shower.
On the palate there is definite tension. Bright berry and plum fruits and freshness and clean acidity that combine to compel the diving-bell depth of fruit to sit upright and well-postured. This fruit flavour is at once both ripe and savoury, giving and yet formal. These flavours combine lock-and-step with the fluffy tannins to make for a mouth-coating, charismatic glass of red wine. It finishes dry and clean with the berry and plum fruit flavours intertwined with rolling tannins..
