Dandelion Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling 2012
Dandelion Vineyards is a unique fusion of vineyards and vignerons. Colin Kroehn tended his Eden Valley Riesling for 66 years. The Wonderland of the Eden Valley is made entirely from his vineyard which was planted in 1912 and thrives to this day.
The nose has a gemlike, pristine almost shimmering bursting scented bouquet of glittering, glimmering, glistening incandescence, with invigorating, intense smells of lime blossom. The palate has an extraordinary precise and clean fruit spectrum of lemon and other citrus fruit flavours, stone-fruit, including apricot as well as classic mandarin citrus on the mid palate, developing into rich lemon meringue tart-like flavour.
Medium to full yellow-green; the aromatics of the bouquet bring together every expression imaginable of lime and lemon, the palate following suit, minerally/chalky acidity providing both drive and structure.
