Expert Reviews

95 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionHand-picked, crushed to open fermenters, 12 days on skins, 18 months maturation in French and American oak, largely used. Deep crimson-purple; full-bodied, but not the least oppressive, letting all things McLaren Vale free to express themselves. Blackberry, black cherry and bitter chocolate are wrapped in a gauze veil of ripe tannins.
92 Points - James SucklingThis carries plenty of the bright red berries and red plums that make for very appealing and drinkable McLaren Vale shiraz. The spicy, espresso-flavored oak at the finish works well, too. Drink now. Screw cap.

How's it taste?

Deep purple with hints of violet on the edges, indicating youth. Impressive purity of fruit showing lush scents of summer pudding with lifted red fruits, berries and a hit of cinnamon. Black cherries, Damson plums, mulberries and milk chocolate undertones. Generous mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice.

Who made it?

Dandelion Vineyards defies normal description, it is perhaps Australia's most quixotic fusion of vineyard and vigneron. Every bottle signs off with - Wish you were here... Every wine is sourced from a single site. Founder, owner, winemaker - Elena Brooks - is a polymath and perfectionist on a lifelong vinous treasure hunt, following the inspiration of the Dandelion Flower's Wishing Clock. Vineyards = Family. Wines = Children. Serious stuff. Proper fun, absolutely.
