Dandelion Vineyards Lion’s Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz Riesling

2019

In a Nutshell

An almost forgotten but traditional and timeless blend of Shiraz and Riesling.

Tasting Notes

Deep red in colour with youthful violet hints, the wine has aromas of rose petals, lifted red fruits and a hint of lime marmalade from the co-fermentation with the aromatic Eden Valley Riesling. Wild cherries, blueberries and balanced, spicy oak make for an opulent palate, with velvety tannins and an intriguing finish.

Production Notes

The Shiraz grapes were hand harvested and whole-bunch fermented with stalks, in open fermenters on top of Riesling skins for 11 days. The cap was hand plunged twice daily before being gently pressed into a mix of new and old French oak barriques to complete fermentation. The wine remained in barrel for 18 months before being racked and bottled without filtration or fining.
