Description:

Dandelion Vineyards is a unique fusion of vineyards and vignerons. Our wines represent decades of experience, blending the fruit of our old vine gardens with the finest traditions of artisan winemaking.

Dandelion Vineyards are proven plantings that have stood the test of time. Our wish is to nurture the unique character of these vineyards and express their terroir in our wines.

Dandelion Vineyards is a unique fusion of vineyards and vignerons. Our wines represent decades of experience, blending the fruit of our old vine gardens with the finest traditions of artisan winemaking.

At the end of our old vine garden path there is a historic ‘Menagerie’ of three grape varieties, adjoining blocks of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro at Gomersal in the Barossa. After hand picking selected bunches of our Menagerie field blend on the 22nd of March our winemaker Elena Brooks let the whole bunches ferment together in open top fermenters with ambient or ‘other people’s’ yeasts for 14 days, before basket pressing in old French Oak barriques. The wines was then matured for a further 12 months in the same oak, before bottling without fining or filtration to capture the essence of our vinous Menagerie of the Barossa.

This vintage of our Menagerie of the Barossa has a high level of natural acidity, a pH 3.49 and is bone dry. It is ménage à trois that makes wine truly of its time and place, a wish come true and a looking glass, if you will, and although ready to drink immediately it will also reward cellaring and decanting.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Deep red with hints of violet on the edges, indicating youth.

Nose

A summer pudding of lifted red fruits, berries and a hit of cinnamon and Asian spice. Wild cherries, Damson plums, mulberries and an impressive stucture balanced by spicy oak.

Palate

Opulent, intense red berries balanced by soft velvety tannins and supple oak with great balance from the acid reknown in Barossa Grenache.

Drink

Perfect partner for the casual lunch in relaxed settings. The wine is suitable to a wide range of food, from freshly caught seafood to a rich pasta dish and red meat in spring herbs.
