You can call this red a homage. A homage to the skill of winemaking guru Elena Brooks and to the beauty of old vine Grenache.

The town of Gomersal plays a starring role here, with this sometimes forgotten part of the Barossa the source of the latest Dandelion deliciousness. A wine that combines the red fruit joy of Grenache, with some judicious inputs from Shiraz and Mataro (or Mourvedre whatever is your flavour) it has the vibrancy of more medium bodied reds but driven by the impressive depth of old vine fruit.

Another wonder red from a true wunderkind.

How's it taste?

Liqueur cherry, sweet grenache fruit and spice dominate the rich, bold nose. The palate is big; loaded with sweet mocha, black fruit, very ripe, creme brulee oaky finish. A rich, opulent wine.

How was it made?

Our Sleeping Beauty rests on century-old Barossa vineyards, in the historic town of Gomersal. After hand-picking selected bunches of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro in mid-March our winemaker Elena Brooks let the whole bunches ferment together in open top fermenters with ambient yeasts. The wine was hand plunged for 14 days, before basket pressing into old French and American Oak barriques, to then mature for
a further 24 months in the same oak, before bottling without fining or filtration to capture the essence of old-vine Barossa GSM. This vintage of our Sleeping Beauty of the Barossa GSM has a high level of natural acidity, and is bone dry and although ready to drink immediately it will also reward time resting in the cellar till awoken by love’s first sip.

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.

My friends often ask me, “How do you know which wine to pick?” To be honest to comes down to a range of factors; the occasion, the people, the food or even just what mood I’m in. But one of the things I love is when I try something new or slightly different to what I’d normally drink and it blows me away. Here are a few wines that I’ve recently uncovered:
