The 2018 Dandelion Firehawk Farm Shiraz is a seamless incorporation of aromatics and bouquet, yet with each knowing its definite role. Aromas of dark, tight, freshly pressed berries hinting at cassis and mulberry soar over an unspoilt valley of savoury cedar and laurel. The nose is thus imponderably ponderable. Forest moss, leather, nuttiness, earth and abundant berry fruit. The ensuing mouthful of plush, deep, and coating fruit cabrioles from aniseed and eucalyptus to blackberry and black cherry, from green herbs and liquorice to plums and ripe raspberries. And then tannins announce themselves, for they come not singularly, but in legion. The wines beautiful natural acid stands up, the tannins grip, the fruit floods.
