'This is an attractively textural Riesling displaying the variety’s intense purity.'
Dandelion Vineyards is a unique fusion of vineyards and vignerons. Their wines represent decades of experience, blending the fruit of old vine gardens with the finest traditions of artisan winemaking. Dandelion Vineyards are proven plantings that have stood the test of time. Capturing variety, vintage and vineyard requires an enlightened approach and Dandelion's aim is to nurture the unique character of these vineyards and express their terroir in the wines.
Our Enchanted Garden was planted in 1910 and thrives to this day, a 7 acre Eden Valley Vine Garden lovingly tended by Sue and Stuart Woodman. Whole bunches were hand picked on the 9th of March then de-stemmed without crushing the fruit to fill our press exactly. Juice from the free run and pressings were separated then fermented in small tanks between 11 and 13 degrees Celcius. The wine has a high level of natural acidity, 7.6 grams per litre, a pH of 2.93 and although bone dry, only 11.5% alcohol. This 2016 Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling was bottled directly with minimal fining and filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard, a looking glass if you will, and is ready to drink immediately or cellar for decades. Thank you Mr & Mrs Woodman.
With classic Riesling aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers, etched by a clear steely minerality this wine holds the promise of a future, well-cellared bouquet of honey, caraway and rye. With a palate weight that is all fresh rain water, this is an attractively textural Riesling displaying the variety’s intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.
