Tasting Notes

Deep amber/ochre fading to a rusty orange hue. Extraordinary nose of crème brulée, citrus 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.

Producer details

PRODUCER Dandelion Vineyards is the venture of self-titled ‘typist’ Zar Brooks and his winemaking wife Elena, with wines made from the Barossa and Eden Valleys, Fleurieu, the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. Nick Stock, one of Australia’s leading journalists, has described Dandelion as follows: “Brooks has teamed up with his winemaking wife Elena, a woman whose talents are outweighed only by her tolerance, in an exciting new venture called Dandelion Vineyards. The approach is remarkably simple and sees Elena making wine from a suite of beautiful old vineyards across that blessed curve that runs from the Barossa, up through the Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills and down into McLaren Vale.”

In the vineyard

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.

In the winery

Traditionally made using artisanal winemaking practices, this wine is hand blended and bottled without fining or filtration.

Food Recommendations

Enjoy with rich desserts or poured over Ice-Cream.
