Lou Miranda Estate Golden Lion Shiraz 2019
- Rich, full-bodied
Ladies and gentlemen - can you hear the lion roar? Yes, the Golden Lion is back and fiercer than ever!
The universally-adored Lou Miranda shiraz is without a doubt one of our favourite wines, for so many reasons. Unmistakably Barossa, and as ferociously opulent as the name suggests. All family owned, all female run, all quality driven, and all American oak are just some of the great things about this wine year after year. The 2019 vintage was a stand out vintage for Barossa, something you can’t help but notice in this fruit driven, dramatic wine. Dark berries, plums and abundant spices, with a toasty, creamy and coconut-rich finish. It’s big, bold, and ballsy drinking to sink your teeth into at important family get-togethers. This beast will cellar for a decade or more, easily. That’s no reason to shy away from opening it though. We’re betting this lion won’t stay caged for long.

“Superbly ripe and perfumed with black/blueberry, vanillin oak, clove and dark cocoa characters, leading to a plush palate that' s concentrated and sumptuous. Delectably smooth and richly textured, making it immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2034.”

Lou Miranda Estate
Inspired by his Southern Italian upbringing, Lou Miranda believed that an exceptional wine should always be valued as much as a loving family and good friends. So in 2005 he established his eponymous winery in the Barossa Valley, with the help and support of his wife and two daughters, Lisa and Victoria. With an objective to 'create a unique wine experience combining traditional family elements and world-class wine making techniques', from the selection of first-class fruit to disciplined vineyard management and winemaking techniques, Lou Miranda are a force to be reckoned with.
Confusingly, the Barossa Zone (aka 'Barossa') encompasses the Eden and Barossa Valley regions (the word 'Valley' being the key differentiator). If you don't want all your eggs in one basket, or all your shiraz from one region, this is one solid way to get some complexity of layers (of course, it's not all about shiraz - ha! Yes it is). Despite being about the same area, Eden Valley only has about 20% of the area under vine that its more famous neighbour manages. But it's no surprise that you'll find many of the big and boutique players sourcing their most expensive wines from a little higher than the Barossa Valley floor. So if you see a wine labelled as 'Barossa', you might just be looking at something that extra bit special.
