The top 10 wines in the US press

7th March, 2013 by Andy Young

Dandelion Vineyards Lion’s Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz-Riesling 2009

Dandelion Vineyards Lions Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz-RieslingIn the Washington Post, Dave McIntyre, gives this wine three stars (out of three), but does say that because of the screwcap it needs to be decanted for at least 30 minutes before drinking.

He writes that once decanted “you have a rich, spicy, racy wine brimming with blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, eucalyptus and mint. Fermenting the Shiraz on the pressed skins of Riesling grapes gives the wine an enticing, irresistible lure.”
