    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.

    The Lioness of McLaren Vale is Elena’s first Shiraz cub and reowwww, she’s hot!…

    Trophy Platinum & Best Shiraz – San Diego Wine & Spirit Competition 2017
    Gold – Melbourne International Wine Competition 2017
    Gold – AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge 2017
    93/100 – James Halliday

    That’s a Trophy, 3 Gold medals and a big thumbs up from James Halliday in the bag – infact James said “It combines heft with restraint and that’s its key. Black coal, redcurrant, blackberry and clove flavours announce the presence of a big wine, but from there it just keeps the flow going, the party on track. No fireworks, no overreaching, no embarrassing leaps into the pool, and all the better for it. This is a hearty red wine to sit down and settle in with.”:

    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.
