Chaffey Brothers Düfte Punkt Riesling Gewürztraminer Kerner 2017 - Wine

Tasting Notes

It's co-fermented, at first playing it's Riesling card with lime florals andd aromatics, though the more exotic gewurztraminer comes out of it's shell as you go. They do, perhaps, add to this wine's fabulous texture: chalky, pithy and peppery/spicy with a lingering, mouth watering result.

Production Notes

From the revered Fechner bros. vineyard in the Northern Eden Valley. The Fechner bros. have the only Kerner vineyard in Australia after they encountered the Riesling cross-breed during a visit to Germany in 2003. The vineyard is adjacent to a Limestone quarry. These vines are all growing through a layer of clay into Limestone bedrock, which underpins the aromatic impact of the germanic white varieties. A prevailing breeze here keeps the vineyard dry, which allows for a light-handed approach to weed/disease control.deg.The three varieties are machine harvested to allow for modest skin contact, while the Gewurztraminer sees another 20-24 hours of skin contact after it is crushed and before pressing. Co-fermentation occurs in a temperature controlled inox fermenter using a combination of indiginous and selected yeasts to develop and protect delicate aromas. As a stylistic choice, no fining is used throughout the winemaking process and only minimal SO2 is added prior to bottling.

Producer Profile

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 are not afraid to try something new, and for me, 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 - a 100% Grenache, whole cluster pressed, minimal SO2, super crunchy, ripe, red fruit, a real corker of a wine and looks banging too!
