About

I don’t drink a lot of dessert wines, but this is a wine steeped in history. It’s always a wine that’s near impossible not to enjoy!

The Pedro Ximenez variety is a rare sight in Australia these days, with most of the plantings being ripped out decades ago in favour of more mainstream varieties. Barossa Valley vigneron Carl Lindner’s family had the foresight to fortify this wine back in the 1940’s, and so it remains to this day under the Dandelion label.

I think Winsor Dobbin said it best in his 96 point review, “With vines averaging 30 years of age (and some much older) this is a wine of intensity and power, but at the same time full of charm: a James Bond wine, one might say.”

At 19% alcohol this isn’t your everyday quaffer, but if you like a warming dessert wine on a cool night then you can’t go past this. Absolutely delicious!

What It Tastes Like

Burnt caramel-coloured in the glass, with an exotic array of aromas including but not exclusive to fruit cake, butterscotch, toffee and raisins. The palate is unthinkably rich and luscious, with waves of prunes, biscuits and maple syrup and a nice line of acid underpinning it all. Pretty full on but so much to love!
