Dandelion, Shiraz-Riesling, 6 x 75cl

Dandelion, Shiraz-Riesling, 6 x 75cl

Flavour-ripe Shiraz grapes were hand harvested in the first week of March, 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.

Tasting Notes
Deep red with youthful hints of violet. Rose petals and lifted red fruit aromas mingle with berries and a little lime marmalade from the co- fermentation with the aromatic Eden Valley Riesling. Wild cherries, blueberries and mulberries are balanced by spicy oak aromas. The palate is opulent and intense, with red berries balanced by soft velvety tannins and supple oak. The intriguing finish is derived from the unique, enlightened co-ferment.
