DANDELION VINEYARDS LIONESS OF MCLAREN VALE SHIRAZ 750ML | 2018 | 14.5%ALC

Description:
Colour: Velvet, purple; black and dense.
Nose: A deft combination of the winemaker’s bouquet and the vineyard’s grape aromatics. The latter is all pepper, earth and plums – with a whiff of freshly grated white chocolate, some tar and some aniseed. This is the ying and yang of McLaren Vale shiraz. And then, in low undercurrent, comes the winemaker’s pinch of cinnamon and of mixed spice, of that leather and of that coffee that comes from judicious oak barrel use.
Palate: A thoughtless sip might initially suggest a red wine that is round, rich and giving. And there is nothing wrong with that. Further connoisseurship, however, reveals
the continued interplay between the barrel and the grape. Those warmer and more exotic spices lace ever so lightly a deep core of unbridled and yet uncoiled shiraz fruit. Dark fruit. Fruits of Christmas Pudding and plums, of blackberry and mulberry. The finish is dry and long.
