      Winemaker Notes

      The bouquet immediately proclaims the age and class of the wine. Freshly toasted pecans, figs, fresh cream toffee and creme brulee with English breakfast tea, mandarin citrus peel and hints of maple syrup.

      The palate is sweet and rich with an aged orange peel and honey marmalade middle with candied fruit, citrus/apricot and toffee flavors that flow to a drying finish thanks to the extremely complex and fresh 'rancio', and almost electric, piecing intensity.

      RP 93
      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      Pale amber color with a nose of hazelnuts, dried figs and dates plus hints of brine and dusty earth, this is very sweet, unctuous and full in the mouth with a great concentration of nutty dried fruit flavors, a wonderful backbone of refreshing acid, and a very long finish.

      Dandelion Vineyards, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
      Dandelion Vineyards is combination of all of our favourite local terroirs with mature and in some cases centurion plus vineyards, down-and-dirty viticulture and purist winemaking....a vinous treasure hunt in our own vineyards! At Dandelion Vineyards we really do 'wish you were here...' Our vineyards are our family, their wines our children. Serious stuff, certainly. Proper fun, absolutely.

Our wines represent decades of experience, blending the fruit of our heirloom vineyards with the finest traditions of artisan winemaking. Dandelion Vineyards combination of old vineyards and young winemaker and a couple of mates to help out in-between which we believe makes for the ideal winery.

      Barossa Valley

      View all wine

      Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

      The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

      Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

      Most sherries are dry and meant to pair alongside food but Americans have traditionally focused on the sweet ones. Sherry comes from only one place in the entire world, Andalucía, where the soil and unique seasonal changes give an unsurpassed character to its wines. The many styles change with the process of production, not really the grape, though certain styles are reserved for different grapes. The main grapes are Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria.

      Pedro Ximénez can make some amazing sweet sherries. Cream Sherry is technically the sweetest, darkest style of Sherry, except sometimes Pedro Ximénez can be sweeter. The rest of the styles are dry and dependent on the action of flor, which are benevolent film-forming yeasts that make a floating veil on the surface of the wine and protect it from oxidation.

      Fino, from Jerez, and Manzanilla, from the humid and cool coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, are the lightest styles and are meant to be drunk young.

      Amontillado happens when a Fino’s layer of flor fades and the wine starts to oxidize. Quite simply it is an aged Fino that has a darker color and richer palate.

      When flor yeast dies unexpectedly, the result is Palo Cortado. Palo Cortado Sherries can behave like Amontillado on the palate but often show a greater balance of richness and delicacy.

      Oloroso never develops flor but is oxidized for five to twenty five years and become aromatic and strong like a fine bourbon.
