  • 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.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    95% whole bunch shiraz fermented with 5% riesling skins for 11 days, then matured in French barriques (mostly new) for 18 months. Is the type of wine that fuels fierce arguments about 100% whole bunch ferments (the riesling is a side show). Vibrantly aromatic and flavoured to the point of outright mouthwatering red fruits and a streak of acidity end up as a coherent whole.

    JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE


    Shiraz-Riesling? If Viognier works, why not Riesling? The 2017 Lion's Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz Riesling blends Shiraz with Eden Valley Riesling skins, resulting in a peppery, berry-laden, mouthwatering wine that sells for a song. It's medium to full-bodied, with crunchy, fresh fruit character, ripe but firm tannins and a crisp finish.

    The straight-up appeal is undeniable here with red plums and wild berries that fill out this approachable shiraz. Super juicy finish. A blend of 95{57fad9ee61bf918aa52920273f359c8e536a71964db5ab5f07ccf141889f9eaa} shiraz and 5{57fad9ee61bf918aa52920273f359c8e536a71964db5ab5f07ccf141889f9eaa} riesling. Drink now. Screw cap.

    DECANTER WORLD WINE AWARDS 2019 - BRONZE


    Sweet perfumed nose and an abundance of plums and damsons to taste. Gutsy, firm and built to last.
