Dandelion vineyards is a venture between marketing gurus Zar Brooks and Brad Rey, with Zar’s wife, Elena as the winemaker. ‘When I see a weed I see the Devil' is an old viticulturalist's mantra, which makes the labelling of this wine rather quizzical. However, at Dandelion vineyards, we're told they actually encourage the dandelion to grow amongst the vines as it suppresses winter weeds and provides mulch in summer.
Boasting superb fruit purity and opulence, one couldn’t ask for a better follow up to the superb 2012 Lionheart Shiraz.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from a selection of Carl Lindner’s old vine vineyards (many being over 100 years old) with maturation taking place in predominately older French oak barriques, (only 25% were new), for a period of 18 months.
Fantastic saturated inky black colour with a very deep dark purple black hue. Intense dark plum, blackberry and liquorice aromas arise from the glass over some dark chocolate, vanillin cedar and spice heralding great things to come. Brimming with opulent fruit the palate boasts huge richness, more than ample weight and a satin like texture. Bountiful flavours of ripe dark plums, liquorice and blackberries glide across the palate followed by some vanillin cedar and spice. Velvet smooth tannins with excellent depth and concentration finishing long with an aftertaste of dark plums, liquorice, blackberries, chocolaty vanillin oak and spice.
Cellar 5-6 years.
