Reviews and Ratings

From Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart Of The Barossa 2017 is the smaller version of the 750ml Shiraz. At 375ml, this is a perfect size to appreciate prior to dinner with Kofta kebabs. Toasty and smoky dark fruit and cherry aromas on the nose, this is a full-bodied red, smooth and supple with dark plum, blackberry, mulberry and savoury herb flavours on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
