Dandelion Vineyards March Hare of the Barossa Mataro

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The March Hare is the loveable, goofy character from Alice In Wonderland, which is perhaps why this wine is named after him. Hailing from a smashing Barossa vintage, this wine is totally loveable, with it's smells of dark and blue berries, earthy spices and hints of cedar right through to it's fuller-bodied, mouth filling, lush berry flavours, fine and drying tannins, and plummy finish. It will be love at first sniff.

Winemaker's Notes

Dandelion Vineyards March Hare of the Barossa is a single vineyard wine from Carl Lindner's old block near Lyndoch, the cooler, wetter southern end of the Barossa, ideal for Mataro or Mourvedre as it is also known. The March Hare Vineyards is also ideal at attracting wildlife, including hares who from the first colour in the grapes madly attack the fruit from March onwards and from all directions.

Appearance: Deep dark impenetrable like the interior of Count Dracula’s cape.

Nose: Blackcurrant, Damask plum and earthiness, with a hint of spice. Smells like freshly fallen rain on concrete.

Palate: Opulent, welcoming, round and mouth filling. This overindulgence is saved at the palate’s end with drying tannins and a cleansing lick of acidity. Long and Lingering with a taste of plums that remind you of the wines first enticing perfume.

Food: Enjoy with rich spicy food, Chorizo sausage and chilli black beans.

Alcohol: 14.0%

Grape Variety: 100% Mataro.
