|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Gutsy and fresh. This Barossa Shiraz sees 18 months in French oak, after fermentation in traditional open-top fermentors. They use a basket press to be as efficient as possible with extraction. This wine has some really attractive complexity (heavy spice notes) that result from the treatment.
Inky garnet colour. Glass-coating.
Though it is big, it isn't overly alcoholic, like many hige wines from this area. It has heft, but also lots of complexity.
Aromas of espresso, tilled earth, plum, black currant, blueberry jam. Spicy black pepper on the nose too.
Flavourful and at once fruity, but with plenty of aromatic spices that tramslate to the taste. Chocolate, pepper, and coffee come to mind.
This would be an excellent value for a cellar candidate (5-7 years).
Pair it with Aussie or NZ lamb seasoned simply and served with mint sauce, or chestnuts. Tried twice.
|From Dandelion Vineyards, Lionheart Of The Barossa (2016) is a robust, dry red wine made with Shiraz wine grapes sourced from 100 year old Barossa Valley vines. This full-bodied Shiraz is unfiltered, so expect full on, ripe blackfruit, blueberry and soft savoury and sweet spice flavours. This vintage was awarded Gold at the New Zealand International Wine Show 2017. Great cellaring candidate. - Community Wine Reviews|
