Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of golden apple, pear, creamy lemon, and honey with a touch of vanilla and some warm baking spices. Medium bodied, with medium+ acidity, slightly soft and creamy on the palate with lovely balanced ripe fruit with a hint of tart apple. Fresh, crisp, and clean on the palate. Enjoy with classic roasted chicken or pan-seared scallops.
Dandelion Vineyards Twilight Of The Adelaide Hills 2018 Chardonnay is dry, full-bodied with lots of food-friendly acidity. Look for ripe apricot, peach, clean mineral and citrusy flavours creamy on the palate. Cool-fermented in small stainless-steel tanks with some fermentation in new and first-use French Oak Barriques. Aged on its lees for nine months prior to bottling. - Community Wine Reviews
