Chaffey Bros Duftepunkt 2016Chaffey Bros Wine Co
ORIGIN: Australia (Eden Valley, Barossa)
GRAPE VARIETAL: White Blend (Riesing, Gewurztraminer, Weisser Herold, aka Kerner)
One Vineyard. Three Germanic Luminaries. One Aromatic Explosion.
Düfte Punkt is an aromatic paradigm-shift. A seamless single-vineyard blend of spicy Gewürztraminer, precise Riesling and textural Weißer Herold. Striking lychee and turkish delight aromas introduce a complex palate showing lychees, mandarins, minerality and a lingering powder-puff of florals.
Best enjoyed fresh and chilled!
The Fechner brothers' applauded vineyard in the Eden Valley is unique for both its spectacular aromatics and its unique varietal mix. This field blend is a cofermentation consisting of 40% Riesling, 40% Gewürztraminer and 20% Weißer Herold (from one of only two Australian plantings of this Riesling-Trollinger crossbreed).
