Dandelion Vineyards is a fusion of vineyards and vignerons working with old vineyards and artisan winemaking. Zar Brooks and his winemaker wife Elena have teamed up with vignerons Brad Rey and Carl Lindner to produce a range of wines from their favourite vineyards in key regions in South Australia. Their aim is to nurture the character of the vineyards and express the terroir in the wines. As James Halliday states in his 2011 Australian Wine Companion, "It may be a dauntingly competitive marketplace, but there can be few more promising new ventures than this one". The vines for this rare XO Pedro Ximenez have an average age of 30 years. Vigneron Carl Lindner`s family have being growing PX and producing the fortified wine there since 1944. Deep amber/ochre fading to a rusty orange hue. Extraordinary nose of creme brulee, citurs peel, maple syrup, almonds, figs and raisins. Sweet and rich on the palate with vibrant acidity and flavours of candied fruit, citrus, apricot, dried figs and toffee.
"Pale amber color with a nose of hazelnuts, dried figs, sultanas and dates plus hints of brine and dusty earth, the NV Legacy of the Barossa 30 Year Old Pedros Ximinez 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. This is a beautifully balanced fortified wine and ready to drink now." 93 Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2013
"It has a strong, dark roasted nut bouquet, and an extremely luscious brandy snap, cumquat, nut and tea palate. This is seriously old material." 94 points, Australian Wine Companion, James Halliday, 27 Jul 11more ↓ less ↑
