Cracka Review

A rather serious rosé this one. Serious but not (all at once). In other words it's dry and long but also with a hint of sweetness, a wine of juiciness but also elusive texture.

Winemaker's Notes

This third vintage of our Fairytale of the Barossa Rosé has a high level of natural acidity, (7.5 grams per litre) a pH 3.16 of and less than 5 g/L of residual sugar with an alcohol of just 13.5%. It is truly a wine of its time and place, a wish come true and a looking glass, if you will, ready to drink immediately, if not sooner. 

Appearance: Translucent salmon with unadulterated orange onion skin hues.

Nose: The aromatics are true to type, initially delicate, even shy. Then as the glass warms a melange of spices including cardamom with hints of Lily of the Valley and Pomander that emanate from the core.

Palate: A drying raspberry entry followed by more raspberries. Fresh and zingy with a long palate that really saturates your taste buds with flavour.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Dandelion Vineyards Fairytale of the Barossa Rosé

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
Dandelion's first Fairytale boasts impressive credentials of old vine Barossa grenache, wild yeast fermentation and old French barriques, making it a soft, savoury style, just a touch too sweet for its price.

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
This pale electric-pink rose looks terrific in bottle and has a little perfume and flint on the nose, made with grenache. The palate's all about crunchy red-fruit flavours - quite simple. Sulphur sits a little high for now but should settle down. Price is a question here.
