User Reviews for Lionheart Wines Syrah

Winemaker's Notes:

*95 points* - James Halliday, Australia Wine Companion 2011 Dandelion Vineyards is a fusion of vineyards and vignerons working with old vineyards and artisan winemaking. Zar Brooks and his winemaker wife Elena have teamed up with vignerons Brad Rey and Carl Lindner to produce a range of wines from their favourite vineyards in key regions in South Australia. Their aim is to nurture the character of the vineyards and express the terroir in the wines. As James Halliday states in his 2011 Australian Wine Companion, "It may be a dauntingly competitive marketplace, but there can be few more promising new ventures than this one". Grapes are from an old vine vineyard the the Barossa with many vines over a hundred years old, many on original rootstock. On the nose, lifted blue fruits, blood plum, ripe blackberries and Christmas pudding-like spice burst out of the glass with spicy pepperand hints of bramble and chocolate. In the mouth, there is generous sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums with firm and fine tannins and dark chocolate nuances. "Deep crimson colour... its medium-bodied frame charged with supple plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit; French oak handling exemplary, as are the tannins." James Halliday
