This is the exciting new face of winemaking in Australia. Established in 2008 by brothers-in-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela, Chaffey Bros champion Riesling, Shiraz and Grenache from Eden and Barossa Valleys. Working in the realm of minimal intervention, artisan, small-batch wines, the pair prioritise experimentation and quality.
Dan and Theo share a love for the sometimes brutal, remote landscapes of Barossa and Eden Valleys, which also boast a rich tapestry of passionate communities. We have long admired the Chaffey Bros wines – the whites all have this beautiful floral note about them, making them equally elegant and quaffable, while the reds are punchy, balancing razor-like acidity with purity of fruit to produce a signature, easy-drinking style...so far removed from the classic bruiser Barossa Shiraz wines of the past.
The Chaffey Bros also aren’t afraid to try something new, and for us, this is what new wave Australian wine is all about! Great wines that challenge your thinking at an affordable price. Watch out for the Pax Aeterna – 100% Grenache, whole cluster pressed, minimal SO2 – super crunchy, ripe, red fruit, a real corker of a wine and looks banging too!
