Dandelion Vineyard Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz

Dandelion Vineyard Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz

$29.00

Dandelion Vineyard

In the last week of April whole bunches of Shiraz were hand harvested, then gently crushed and naturally fermented in open fermenters for eight days, hand plunged twice a day, before careful basket pressing into some new but predominantly older French Oak Barriques to finish fermentation. After 18 months maturation and a racking in the same oak, we bottled our Lionheart without filtration or fining, to capture the essence of the vineyard. Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart is ready to drink and will reward cellaring and decanting.

    • Varietal - Shiraz
    • Year - 2018
    • Alcohol Volume - 14.5%
    • Region - Barossa Valley
