Dandelion Vineyards defies normal description, it is perhaps Australia's most quixotic fusion of vineyard and vigneron. Every bottle signs off with - Wish you were here... Every wine is sourced from a single site. Founder, owner, winemaker - Elena Brooks - is a polymath and perfectionist on a lifelong vinous treasure hunt, following the inspiration of the Dandelion Flower's Wishing Clock. Vineyards = Family. Wines = Children. Serious stuff. Proper fun, absolutely.
STEPHEN CREBER - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
The scion of a blend first fortified in '44 by the Lindner family. Aromas of raisin, dried fig and almond biscuit with distinctive rancio character. Fully sweet on the palate but rich rather than liqueur-like, with a soft, slightly drying finish. Advice from the winery is that it could be served chilled as an aperitif style which might be worth trying. 375ml.
DECANTER WORLD WINE AWARDS
