Dandelion Vineyards Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling 2014

£20.99

TASTING NOTE

Colin Kroehn has tended his Eden Valley Riesling for 67 of his 87 years. The Wonderland of the Eden Valley is made entirely from his vineyard which was planted in 1912 and produces excellent fruit. He encourages the growth of Dandelion amongst the vines as they suppress the winter weeds and provide much mulch in the summer.  

Whole bunches from Dandelion`s oldest vineyard, 101 years old in 2012, were hand picked in the cool of the early morning on 16th March and destemmed in small batches without crushing. The free run juice was fermented in small stainless steel tanks between 11°C and 14°C. It was bottled directly without fiining or filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard.
