It feels good to be number one baby! Trophy winner the No.1 Shiraz at the NZ International Wine Show to go with the Double Gold award at that show, Double Gold in China and a whopping 5 Stars and 95 points from critic Sam Kim.
The Lioness of McLaren Vale is Elena’s first Shiraz cub and what a beast she is! The judges at the NZIWS called this ’19 vintage “Deep, dark, complex and mysterious with a purple crimson hue, an opulent aroma of blackberry, boysenberry, spice, and cedar, and a vibrantly spicy, peppery taste with sumptuous red and black fruits, hints of rose petal, balanced creamy vanillin oak and a long, luscious, seamless finish.”
Dandelion’s making wishes come true. There’s got to be magic behind the label to make Aussie wine guru James Halliday’s list of Top 10 Best New Wineries that’s for sure.
A fusion of vineyards and vignerons across three families in South Australia. But who are the Dandelions? They’re Elena (trophy winemaker and, we might add, trophy wife!), Zar (Elena’s husband, typist and other jobs TBA) and winegrowers Carl, Peggy, Fiona and Brad. Oh, and Madison the dog.
A powerful, dense, full bodied beast loaded with spicy, dark fruit flavours that make Aussie Shiraz lovers simply lick their lips! Pounce on it now.
