Dandelion Vineyards Lions Tooth Shiraz/Riesling

Lions Tooth Shiraz/Riesling

Whole bunches from our most distinctive Shiraz from Nat McMurtrie's Vineyard were hand harvested on the 16th of March, then gently crushed and naturally fermented in open fermenters on top of some Riesling skins for seven days, hand plunged twice a day, before careful basket pressing into some new but predominatly older French Oak Barriques to finish fermentation.and enhance the wine's pefume and palate.
After 18 months maturation and a racking in the same oak, we bottled this Lion's Tooth without filtration or fining, to capture the essence of the vineyard. Deep red with hints of violet on the edges, indicating youth. Intriguing rose petals and a 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 oak. Opulent, intense red berries balanced by soft velvety tannins and supple oak, resulting in an intriguing finish derived from the unique, enlightened co-ferment.
