2012 Dandelion "Wonderland of Eden Valley" Riesling (Eden Valley)

The consistency and quality on offer from the 2012 vintage for Clare and Eden Valley Rieslings would almost be boring, but for the fact that the wines just taste so damn good.

As with most Riesling from this vintage there is a primary, vinous quality that makes this offering from Dandelion incredibly enjoyable from the get go. Ripe lime juice, white flowers, and a gin and tonic quality. All this fruit and flavour sits within an architecture that should see it age well for a decade and beyond. Lovely acidity, a nice sense of texture, and great length of finish. It improved over three days of drinking, and by day three that tell-tale Eden Valley minerality had emerged. Great wine.
