Our Enchanted Garden was planted in 1910 and thrives to this day, a 7-acre Eden Valley Vine Garden. Whole bunches were hand-picked in the second week of March then de-stemmed without crushing the fruit to fill our press exactly. Juices from the free run and pressing were separated, then fermented in a small tank between 11 and 13 degrees Celsius. The wine has a high level of natural acidity of 7.6 grams per litre, a PH of 2.97, and although bone dry, only 11% alcohol. The 2021 Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling was bottled directly with minimal winemaking artifacts to capture the essence of the vineyard, a looking glass if you will, and is ready to drink immediately or cellar for decades. Here's a wine demanding pre-luncheon attention, from simple charcuterie to home-shucked oysters. Fresh fruit and soft cheese? Why not? But for every bottle you drink today, you ought to keep one bottle in your climate-controlled, internet-ready, drone monitored, carbon-neutral eco-cellar for at least 5 years. Then pork rillette with toasted rye bread, on a Monday in very late autumn, in a moment of tranquility.
