100% Riesling from the Enchanted Garden, a 7 acre vineyard planted in 1910 in the Eden Valley region of South Australia.
Whole bunches were hand-picked then de-stemmed without crushing the fruit to fill the press exactly. Juice from the free run and pressings were separated and fermented in small tanks between 11 and 13°C. Bottled directly with minimal fining and filtration.
The appearance of this Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.
