Dandelion Vineyards Red Queen - 2013 Vintage
An exceptional wine delivering the best Eden Valley region has to offer. Floral, spice, intense old vine fruit which is grown without irrigation in the 2013 vintage - an exceptional year producing minimal fruit due to a frosty spring and a hot dry ripening period.
The Red Queen of the Eden Valley vineyard was 102 years young in vintage 2013. These ancient gnarly vines over a hundred years of age, are not only surviving but thriving on their own roots in some of the oldest soils on the planet.
The Red Queen of Eden Valley was hand picked and gently pressed with whole bunches in open top fermenters and left to mature in new french oak for 2 and a half years. Prior to bottling the wine was unfiltered & unfined to maintain maximum colour for long term cellaring.
