    The word dandelion comes from Dente de Lion meaning Lions Tooth.  This is a relatively new venture and what they have set out to do is showcase some of the best of Australia’s regions offering wines from the Barossa, Eden Vale and in this case Mclaren Vale.  The blend is a slightly unusual combination with the Shiraz being fermented over the 5% of Eden Vale Riesling. The Riesling lightens and perfumes the finished wine. So that on the nose there is a noticeable hint of tangy marmalade but in the mouth it is a glorious symphony of blueberries, mulberries and cake spice, wrapped up in sweet vanilla from the careful use of oak barrels.

    It has a lot of power but the tannins are smooth and it is a sheer delight to drink.  The bottle has a very informative back label which names the winemaker as Elena Brooks, the vignerons as Carl Lindnaur & Brad Rey but relegates Elena’s husband a famous winemaker in his own right to Typist!

    Named in fond admiration of the vineyard manager a bear of a man who is famously scruffy and a local charmer. This is a single vineyard Shiraz where the fruit is carefully sorted to deliver a delicious full bodied wine with lots of colour and opulent fruit flavours. The alcohol level is kept to a sensible 14% giving a proper balance to the finished wine.

    Vineyards

    Peter Lehmann Wines works with over 140 growers across the length and breadth of the Barossa Valley region, with access to over 750 individual vineyard sites. Fruit for this wine came from selected vineyards in close proximity to Adelaide.

    Vintage information

    The 2014 vintage started with very hot weather but was interrupted by two days of heavy rain in mid February, After this, the weather settled down and the region experienced wonderful Indian summer conditions for the remainder of the vintage. This allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, producing wines of exceptional quality.

    Vinification

    Cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks prior to blending and early bottling have produced a lively and fresh yet complex white wine.

    Tasting Notes

    Layers is a unique blend that delivers a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the sense in each and every glass. Finely structured lemon tinged Semillon provides a wonderful backbone to support the soft floral aromatics of Muscat, entwined with the delicate spice of Gewürztraminer. Pinot Gris introduces texture and mouthfeel to complete a wonderfully flavoursome wine.
