Dandelion Vineyards 'Wonderland of the Eden Valley'
Eden Valley 75cl
Dandelion Vineyards, buy in their grapes from very specific vineyards. The team have bags of industry experience and they are making great booze, all marketed by the talented Zar Brooks, ex Wirra Wirra and most famously d'Arenberg.
More later, but to this wine. From a really old vineyard in the Eden Valley, planted in 1912. Picked in the cool morning, destemmed, then pressed. The free run juice was fermented in small stainless steel tanks.Bottled unfined and unfiltered. 11.5% alcohol, and dry, an aromatic nose with grapefruit, lime and ripe apple. It's really tight and dry, minerally too with ripe apple, lime,grapefruit and a touch of spice on the palate, already a hint of petrol/kerosene. Clean and zesty with a lovely limey minerally finish and a real crispness. Will age for years though very tasty now.
