Dandelion Vineyards `Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley` Riesling 2019

(1 customer review)

An intensely pure, bone dry, textured wine with bracing acidity typical of its terroir

Country of origin |
Region | Eden Valley, South Australia
Grape Variety |
One of the finest white grapes of them all, Riesling is floral, with high acidity, and can be bone-dry as well as extremely sweet. Tremendous ageing potential.
Vintage | 2019
Size | Bottle / 75cl
ABV | 11%
Style |
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).

  1. Tom B

    This is an unashamed exercise in dry citrus Riesling acidity.

    If that is a bit too much on first opening, give it time and it will open up and soften a bit.

    Once opened up, the waxy lemon peel on the nose is matched by the same on the palate and joined by a linear streak of dry rock minerality.

    Try it with Fish & Chips: it really proved the perfect match.

    A mineral, citrus, distinctive, individual and enjoyable wine. ‘Intense purity’ is right. There is real benefit of it being only 11%!
