Notes: An almost forgotten but traditional & timeless blend of Shiraz & Riesling.

Producer Info: Dandelion Vineyards is the venture of self-titled ‘typist’ Zar Brooks & his winemaking wife Elena, with wines made from the Barossa & Eden Valleys, Fleurieu, the Adelaide Hills & McLaren Vale. Nick Stock, one of Australia’s leading journalists, has described Dandelion as follows: “Brooks has teamed up with his winemaking wife Elena, a woman whose talents are outweighed only by her tolerance, in an exciting new venture called Dandelion Vineyards. The approach is remarkably simple & sees Elena making wine from a suite of beautiful old vineyards across that blessed curve that runs from the Barossa, up through the Eden Valley & Adelaide Hills & down into McLaren Vale.” The word Dandelion, from Dente de Lion means ‘Lion’s Tooth’. They encourage the growth of dandelions in the vineyard as they suppress winter weeds & provide mulch in summer.
