Dandelion take great care to nurture the unique character of their vineyards and express the terroir in their wines. To capture varietal expression, vintage and character of the vineyard requires an enlightened approach. Whole bunches of fully ripe, intensely flavoured Shiraz grapes are hand harvested and gently crushed. Juices are treated to a natural vinification in open fermenters for eight days, hand plunged twice daily, before careful basket pressing into a selection of new and older French oak barriques for completion of ferments. After eighteen months and a course of racking, Lionheart is bottled without any fining or filtration, to retain and preserve the unaltered essence of the vineyard.
Intense crimson with youthful purple hues. Lifted blue fruits, blood plum, ripe blackberries and Christmas pudding spice flow out of the glass with spicy pepper, and hints of bramble and dark chocolate. Generous mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice. Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolaty nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with youthful finish.
