Wine-making for Lou Miranda has always been a passion that is reflected in his love of family, fine wines & cuisine. This is coupled with a dedication to excellence which is reflected in three generations of Miranda. I am proud to introduce the Golden Lion range. The Golden Lion is an ode to the Autumn vine, shedding their golden leaves in preparation for a bountiful Spring.
Leone Chardonnay has been fermented and matured in French oak for 7 months. This wine has a combination of highly flavoured white peach, apricot and tropical fruit with smokey, toastiness from the oak. A full lush palate with a creamy texture it is a perfect accompaniment to a grazing platter shared with friends. Awards Wine Orbit – 94 points/5 stars Winestate Magazine 2018 – 3 stars

From time to time we dust the cobwebs from around the barrels, deep in the cellar, where our valued stock of fortified wine is hidden. We will then select from a barrel and hand bottle to allow minimum interference in the flavours. After 20 years these wines increase with exquisite rancio characters of walnuts, truffles and fresh muffins with the sweet opulence of raisin fruit and the wickedness of black chocolate. A privilege to drink, this wine is a natural with all strong cheeses, desserts of all flavours or merge effortlessly in front of a winter fire and a good book. The perfect port in any storm.
The aromas and flavours show red and black fruit, with blackberry, strawberry and blackcurrant in the mix. A wonderful example of Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon.
