Dufte Punkt Riesling Gewurztraminer Kerner 2016 (6 x 750mL) Eden Valley

Description:

Viticulture - From the revered Fechner bros. vineyard in the Northern Eden Valley (the higher altitude sub-region of the Barossa). The three varieties are harvested progressively triggered by the bloom of florals and colour on the West-facing Gewürztraminer, which usually coincides with flavour ripeness on the East-facing Riesling and Kerner. 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. Vineyard GPS: 34° 28' 39" S 139° 4' 11" E

Vinification - The three varieties are machine harvested to allow for modest skin contact, while the Gewürztraminer 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, we do not use any fining throughout the winemaking process and only minimal SO2 is added prior to bottling.

Expert Reviews

Adelaide Review's HOT100 wines for third consecutive year!

Halliday Wine Companion 91 Points

A triple treat with spice, lychees and Turkish Delight aromas of the gewurztraminer to the fore, riesling's racy acidity driving this and the weisser herold aka kerner adding preserved lemons, body and grip.

Campbell Mattinson (WineFront) 92 points

"The Chaffey Bros wines always feel so harmonious. They glide through the mouth. This boasts a crunch of apple and a crackle of slate, but it slips and slides beautifully through your mouth. There’s a whisper of red apple-like sweetness/perfume and a gunsmoke-like note, along with a kaffir lime character. It’s an explosion of aroma, sure, but it’s also elegance personified"

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

A field blend where Riesling is the driving force, Gewürztraminer provides explosive aromatics and Kerner plays the textural bass line. Three Germanic luminaries, one aromatic explosion!

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. is Barossa rebooted.

Our wines make statements as bold as their avant-garde labels! Minimal intervention winemaking emphasises pure structured fruit and utilises the lost art of judicious small batch blending. The wines we make are the styles that epitomise the Barossa and Eden Valleys.

Winemaker Daniel Chaffey Hartwig is the most recent of the Chaffey Brothers’ descendants to ply the ancient trade. Barossa born and bred, he was immersed in the wine business from an early age and spent 11 years working as a wine consultant to Australia’s leading winemakers. The birth of Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. represents the fruition of a life long dream. In 2012 Daniel was joined by brother-in-law Theo Engela as the other “Chaffey Brother”.
