  • The Furmint grape variety, well known in it's country of origin Hungary, but a real rarity in Austria where only about 10 hectares of vineyards exist. Michael Wenzel is one of the most famous winemaker focusing on his natural dry white wines of this grape.

    This "Garten Eden" is the single vineyard wine with the grapes sourced from the same name plot. It is a special vineyard due to it's soil composition of the red quarz (pictured on the label), and another peculiar thing about the vines is that the plantation was made out of a massal selection from an ancient Furmint clones, which differ from the "modern" clones by having smaller and loose berries on the bunch. 

    This Furmint was fermneted in a new French oak barrel (500 l), and then aged for 16 m in another old barrerl. Natural winemaking with only 25 mg SO2 added. Super low production of 600 bottles only.
