Gold Medal - Sommelier Wine Awards May 13 2013

2011 Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz. "Beauty in depth gave the Lionheart Gold in this impressively plush wine. 'Smoky bacon, brambles and chocolate spice on the nose, lead to a voluptuous palate with a really meaty streak,' said Natasha Hughes, team leader. 'Big and powerful, with enough tannins and acids to balance, plus a long peppery finish,' she said. Good for by the glass lists, this would match taste-fuelled dishes, from macaroni cheese to sirloin steaks." Sommelier Wine Awards (UK) 2013
