Dandelion riesling

Riesling, "Enchanted Garden of Eden Valley" 2015

Dandelion Vineyards

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. The "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.

Reviews

  • "91 points. Green-tinged gold. High-pitched aromas of citrus zest, jasmine and quinine carry a chalky mineral overtone. Dry and linear on the palate, offering tangy lime pith and green apple flavors and a deeper peach note that appears in the midpalate. Shows very good clarity and mineral lift on the incisive finish, which leaves behind bitter citrus pith and succulent herb notes." (vinous)
