Dandelion Vineyards 'Lion's Tooth of McLaren Vale' Shiraz/Riesling, McLaren Vale, 2017
Flavour-ripe Shiraz grapes were hand harvested in late February, then fermented on their stalks in open fermenters on top of some Riesling skins for 11 days. The grapes were hand plunged twice daily, before basket pressing into 15% new and older French oak barriques. After 18 months maturation in the same oak, the wine was bottled without filtration or fining.
Deep red in colour with hints of violet. Aromas of rose petals, lifted red fruits and a little 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.
