Three Gold Medals at San Francisco June 17 2015

Dandelion Vineyards wins another three Gold Medals - this time at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. The award winning wines are 2015 Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling, 2014 Lioness of McLaren Vale Shiraz and 2014 Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling. Winner of a Platinum Medal at the San Diego International Wine Competition, Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling was also reviewed at 95 points by Rich Cook back in February. He wrote: ""Easily the best dry Riesling I've tasted from down under -- and I've had some memorable examples. A nose of bright camellia, tangerine and mixed sweet stone fruit were so enticing that I found myself lingering at the rim, drawing one beautiful whiff after another. Then, the palate -- bone dry, with zesty mixed citrus, stony minerality and bracing acidity working together and gaining in intensity through an extremely long finish kept me coming back. Pricey for Riesling, but it's got the structure that will carry it into the distant future, where fifty dollars will get you a couple of nice cappuccinos. Who'll be laughing then?"
