Dandelion Fairytale of the Barossa Grenache Rosé 2017

Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $30.00
This is the fermented offspring of 90 year old Barossa bush vines. The fruit is basket pressed and spends 5 months in old oak on gross lees before bottling, helping to build creaminess and texture. Redcurrant, cranberry and strawberry here, fairy floss and a suggestion of caramel. Textural, fruity and inviting.

About the winery: "The lifelong search to appreciate and also understanding the truth of wine, that is its terroir, leads us on a vinous treasure hunt, following the Dandelion’s Wishing Clock if you will. A quest that never ceases to inspire."

"Dandelion Vineyards is an adventurous and challenging fusion of vineyards and vignerons. Our wines represent decades of experience, blending the fruit of our heirloom vineyards with the finest traditions of artisan winemaking. Dandelion Vineyards combination of old vineyards and young winemaker, with a couple of mates to help out in-between is the core element, we believe, for an ideal winery."
