2012 Dandelion Vineyards Lioness of McLaren Vale Shiraz is the Winner of the Trophy for McLaren Vale Shiraz at the International Wine Challenge. She has also won Gold Medals at the Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition, San Diego International Wine Competition, San Francisco Wine Competition and Spiegelau International Wine Competition. This week she is James Halliday's Wine of the Week. "Hand-picked and whole bunch-fermented in open pots, hand-plunged for 12 days; spent 2 years in French oak (80% used, 20% new). Dense, yet vivid, crimson-purple; the powerful full-bodied palate is stacked full of layers of black fruits, licorice and dark chocolate, the tannins ripe and balanced, sustaining the long finish. A cellar special." 95 Points
