"An intriguing nose of rose petals and summer pudding of lifted red fruits, berries and a little lime marmalade from the co-fermentation with the aromatic Eden Valley Riesling.
Wild cherries, blueberries, and mulberries and an impressive stucture balanced by spicy, supple oak and soft velvety tannins."
This wine should be stored in a cool dry place, and can be kept for up to 3 years.
"Expert Comment ""16.5 points, JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, 28 Dec 10 Fermented on Riesling skins. Rich and pure blackberry fruit, violets, pepper, dry and savoury despite the typically ripe fruit. Good persistence."" Expert comment: "" The Mail on Sunday - Live Magazine, Olly Smith, 21 Nov 10 Boosting red Shiraz with an inventive squirt of white Riesling gives this wine an upright backbone along with lashings of big, dark fruit: think espresso, dark chocolate, even liquorice. "" Dandelion Vineyards is a fusion of vineyards and vignerons working with old vineyards and artisan winemaking. Zar Brooks and his winemaker wife Elena have teamed up with vignerons Brad Rey and Carl Lindner to produce a range of wines from their favourite vineyards in key regions in South Australia. Their aim is to nurture the character of the vineyards and express the terroir in the wines. As James Halliday states in his 2011 Australian Wine Companion, ""It may be a dauntingly competitive marketplace, but there can be few more promising new ventures than this one""."

It's news to me co-fermented shiraz and riesling skins is a 'long forgotten but timeless Australian blend'. This is quintessential medium-bodied McLaren Vale shiraz with black fruits and spices wrapped up in a chocolate coat, and enjoying every minute of it; adroitly evaded the heat bullet of ’08.
