Dandelion Vineyards 2011 Wonderland of Eden Riesling
There is plenty of romance surrounding this wine, starting out with the slick but gorgeous label & evocative name. Apparently the vineyard from which these grapes have been sourced was planted 1912 & up until 2010, had the same custodian for 66 years.
With a citrus drive all along the palate giving this wine a real zippiness, as in the previous vintage there is an attractive floral note. A dry style of Riesling that has fresh natural acid & finishes long and lingering. A natural companion for food, particularly fish and Asian flavours.
