Although the vineyard team see the devil in every weed, they encourage the humble dandelion to grow amongst vines as they supress winter weeds and provide mulch in summer. Their wishing clocks chime in spring to make the dream of ultra fine Riesling come true. Whole bunches are hand picked and destemmed into small batches without crushing grapes to comfortably fill the wine press. Free run juices are vinified in small fermenters at temperatures between 11°C and 14°C, to bone dry, preserving a high level of natural acidity. Wonderland is bottled directly without fining or filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard, a looking glass if you will.
Pristine pale straw hue. Lights on in this Wonderland, jasmine, mandarin leaf and even lychee juice bursting fruit freshness, invigorating, intense smells of lime skin, citrus blossom, green apple, ripe guavas and cinnamon spice. An extraordinary precise and clean fruit spectrum of crunch lime and other citrus fruit flavours, stonefruit, apricot and mandarin, morphing into rich lemon meringue tart flavours, over steely minerality, balanced by racy, slate acidity.
