The Collective Review

This blew our minds - Dandelion Vineyards Lion's Den Shiraz 2019. You’re gonna love this. It’s made by one of the country’s most talented winemakers - Elena Brooks.

Fruit is taken from a single vineyard in the Willunga foothills in McLaren Vale, then handpicked, basket-pressed and matured in premium French oak for a massive 20 months.

There is a catch. We didn't get in quite quickly enough. The few cases we have are it - one last bite of that delicious Shiraz cherry.

Tasting Notes

Deep purple with violet hints around the edge. Impressive purity of fruit showing lush scents of summer pudding with lifted notes of cherry, plum, mulberry, subtle milk chocolate undertones, and a hint of cinnamon. Generous mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice and exceptional length. Pairs well with seafood, rich pasta, red meat in herbs etc.

Winemakers Note

The Lion's Den of McLaren Vale is sourced from a single vineyard in the foothills of McLaren Vale. After hand picking whole bunches of our Lion's Den of McLaren Vale in early March our winemaker Elena Brooks gently crushed the fruit into open top fermenters. After a 12 day fermentation the wine was basket pressed into some new but predominantly older French Oak barriques, to then mature for a further 20 months in the same oak, before bottling with minimal winemaking artefact to capture the essence of the vineyard. Although ready to drink the Lion's Den of McLaren Vale will also reward cellaring and decanting.
