Lionheart of Barossa Shiraz, Dandelion Vineyards: An exciting new venture produces gold medal winning wine!

Nick Stock, one of Australia’s leading journalists, has described Dandelion as follows: ‘Brooks has teamed up with his winemaking wife Elena, a woman whose talents are outweighed only by her tolerance, in an exciting new venture called Dandelion Vineyards.’

The approach is remarkably simple and sees Elena making wine from a suite of beautiful old vineyards identified by Carl Lindner and Brad Rey across that blessed curve that runs from the Barossa, up through the Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills and down into McLaren Vale.

Grapes are from an old vine vineyard in the Barossa with vines over a hundred years old, many on their original rootstock. Throughout the vineyards the humble dandelion  is encouraged to grow amongst the vines as they suppress winter weeds and provide mulch in summer.

This wine is ideal with a classic Boeuf Bourguignon or Hungarian goulash. Also matches nicely with venison or griddled sirloin steak.

Suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.
