From a 7 acre vineyard near Springton, on the southern end of the Eden Valley. De-stemmed fruit pressed off and only the free run juice. Minimal fuss. Made by the celebrated Elena Brooks.
Dandelion Vineyards, Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley, Riesling, Eden Valley, 2022
Very pale lemon/gold with bright hints. Musky edges to the spiced apple and lime fruit, linen napkins, wild fennel frond and white stones. Austere and firm. holding a solid shape from beginning to end. Potentially with a little time it’ll soften but for now it’s a little serious.
