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.


The wine opens with invigorating, intense perfumes of lime blossom. The palate has a precise, clean fruit character of lemon and citrus, apricot, developing into rich lemon meringue tart-like flavour on the bone-dry finish.
Fermented in small stainless steel tanks and bottled directly without fining or filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard.
