2009 Dandelion Vineyards Twilight Adelaide Hills Chardy
12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewDandelion are known as much for their quality winemaking as they are their for impossibly long wine names. The twilight of the Adelaide Hills is a celebration of modern Chardonnay from winemaker Elena Brooks. It’s imbued with a wet pebble minerality, but there’s peach and citrus as well alluding to quality oak, some grilled nuts make a late appearance. A creamy palate reveals white peach, lemon meringue and vanilla pod, a generous texture and a spicy oak finish that’s propped up by smart natural acid.
Winemaker's NoteVibrant pale straw with a golden tinge. Twilight Chardonnay captures the expression of the Adelaide Hills terroir with layers of citrus, guava, apple and pineapple character. Hints of brioche, hazelnut and mineral weave through the lush fruit flavors. Vibrant palate of generous white peach and citrus fruits entwined with cashew and vanilla bean. The palate is full and rich with the Chardonnay's natural acidity whilst the finish is intermingled with the accents of oak.
