Wenzel Furmint Garten Eden 2019
Michael Wenzel's rare reserve dry Furmint made in crazy small amounts. A revelatory and natural wine.
The tiny Garten Eden site was planted in 2007 using 100 year old cuttings. As a result the bunches are loose and small compared to the other Furmint vines. The soils here are a special red quartz and mica schist and yield extraordinarily complex and refined expressions of the Furmint variety. The grapes were spontaneously fermented in 500 litre barrels (50% new oak). The wine was then kept in oak without sulphur for 14 months and then bottled without filtration.
