When you've some of the oldest Shiraz vines on earth, planted in some of the world's oldest soils, magical things can happen. Grapes so good the wines they make stand out. Wines that captivate from the first whiff of the powerful perfumes to the last drop in the bottle.

Dandelion's Lionheart Shiraz is an outstanding Australian red wine. All the more amazing when you consider how little quality this good costs. If you ever needed convincing that trading up, even by just a few pounds, is worth it, then you really should taste this wine.

The sort of wine that made Australian wine famous. Generous mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice

The Producer

The venture of Zar Brooks, his winemaking wife, Elena, and growers Carl Lindner and Brad Rey, Dandelion Vineyards is a fusion of vineyard sites, named after the humble dandelion which grows amongst the vines, preventing the growth of weeds and providing mulch for the soils. Wines are made from vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valleys, Fleurie and McLaren Vale.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"Made from century-old vines in the prime Shiraz hot-spot of the Barossa Valley in South Australia, this wine combines the effortless concentration and intensity of flavour without any heaviness, that genuinely old vines can offer. Rich with black fruit, mint and a hint of white pepper on the nose, the palate is full, sweet-fruited and rich, the tannins ultra silky, and the acidity juicy and well balanced as some creamy older French oak fills-out the finish. A delicious example of the style." (Tom's reviewing the 2016 here.)

The Region

The vineyards of South Australia produce half of Australia's total volume of wine, with regions as diverse as the lower altitude Barossa Valley, producing rich, structured reds, to the higher altitude vineyards such as the Adelaide Hills and Eden Valley regions, perfect for the production of crisp, dry whites.

Spanish Beef and Chorizo Stew

Spicy, rich stews need a medium bodied red with intense, sweet fruit flavours. Try warming reds such as Barossa Valley Shiraz or Grenache.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Burgers and red wine are a match made in heaven but don’t forget the blue cheese element which could scuper your wine choice. To contrast the creamy, salty notes (not forgetting acidity) of the cheese, head to full, fruity reds with good acidity. We'd go for Dandelion Vineyards' Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz.

Venison Steak with Redcurrant Sauce

The rare red meat and fruity sauce work brilliantly with rich, dark reds. Go for a well-structured but fruit-driven style such as Barossa Valley Shiraz which will square up to the robust meat flavours and complement the redcurrant sauce.
