Dandelion’s Legacy Gardens of Lion’s Teeth

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling 2016 is much the better-settled wine after a year or so in bottle: it’s creamy, smooth and alluring, where many others are sharp and crunchy with acid like a smashed windscreen.

That winemaker Elena Brooks has picked and made the wine to be virtually dry at just 11 alcohols and still achieve this gentility and comfort is a great credit to her indomitable gastronomic intelligence. It reminds me a little of Dr Ernie Loosen’s Riesling from the Pfalz part of Germany. It has an aged lime-and-ginger marmalade notion to it, and it’s just a teeny bit toasty.
