About

96

" There’s additional depth and fragrance with a superior sense of elegance. Impeccable purity, bracing acidity and a long future ahead. This will age brilliantly. Try from 2024."

94 Joe Czerwinski - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Sourced from a vineyard planted in 1912 (the neighboring block to the Shiraz in Dandelion's Red Queen of the Eden Valley Shiraz), the 2017 Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling is an exciting thrill ride of acidity and class. Scents of crushed stone, spring flowers and lime zest mark the nose, while the medium-bodied palate delivers electric acids (pH 2.96) and a finish that would go on for days (if I didn't brush my teeth regularly). This certainly deserves a place among the great Eden Valley Rieslings, combining youthful exuberance with the ability to age gracefully (the 2009 continues to drink beautifully).

Product Description:

"This Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling was bottled directly without fining or filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard, a looking glass if you will, and is ready to drink immediately or cellar for decades. 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 flavors, stone-fruit, including apricot as well as classic mandarin citrus on the mid palate, developing into rich lemon meringue tart-like flavor."
