Winemaker Notes

Green-tinged, pale gold in color. The nose is perfumed with lime and green tones, talcum and minerals, citrus zest and lemon meringue, then lemon juice and rock salts. The palate showcases an unmissable core of intense, ripe citrus fruit with a spine of crunchy mineral notes that speak very much of Eden Valley. The finish is persistent and quite angular with plenty of acidity to maintain decades of freshness. This is a wine that will unfold gracefully over many years.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
This has attractively fresh and vivid lemons and peaches with fine-mineral accents, too. The palate has a smooth-honed and intensely flavored feel with lemon and white-peach flavors. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

At Dandelion Vineyards we really do 'wish you were here...' Our vineyards are our family, their wines our children. Serious stuff, certainly. Proper fun, absolutely.

Dandelion Vineyards combination of old vineyards and young winemaker and a couple of mates to help out in-between which we believe makes for the ideal winery.

Eden Valley Wine

Barossa, Australia

Higher in elevation and topographically more dramatic than the Barossa Valley floor, Eden Valley abuts it to its south and east. While it is a bit of an extension of Barossa, Eden Valley is topographically different than the pastoral Barossa Valley, and is composed of rocky hills and eucalyptus groves.

Recognizing Eden Valley’s potential with Riesling in the 1960s and 70s, producers started to move their Riesling production from Barossa to these better sites where schist soils on hilltops would produce more steely, tart and age-worthy examples. A most famous site, planted by Colin Gramp, called Steingarten, today produces one of the most outstanding Australian Rieslings. Youthful Eden Valley Rieslings express floral, grapefruit and mineral, while with time in the bottle, they become increasingly toasty and complex.

Riesling isn’t the only grape the region can grow; undeniably at lower altitudes Shiraz does very well. Mount Edelstone is a notable vineyard as well as the Hill of Grace, which boasts healthy Shiraz vines well over 100 years old. This is the only Australian region where Merlot has a made a name for itself and Chardonnay can be spectacular, particularly from the High Eden subregion in the southern valley.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
