2019 Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. Dufte Punkt Blend

Barossa - Eden Valley Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Kerner Blend

A delicate balance of floral bouquet's, hints of spice with a clean and softly textured finish. A blend of three grape varieties and the only blend of it kind in Australia; Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Kerner (see Kontrapunkt Chaffey wine for more information).

Vineyard: The Fechner brothers' applauded vineyard in the Eden Valley is unique for both its spectacular aromatics and its unique varietal mix.

Season: Exceptional quality was achieved from the 2019 vintage but extremely limited quantities produced; due to the lower than average rainfall recordings. Frost disrupted the first vine buds in spring and throughout flowering which again reduced overall wine grape supply. The dry ripening season through summer kept disease pressure to a minimum and cooler high country breezes allowed the grapes to ripen for a vintage of premium quality

Winemaking: This field blend is a co-fermentation consisting of 40% Riesling, 40% Gewürztraminer and 20% Weißer Herold or Kerner grape variety (from one of only two Australian plantings of this Riesling-Trollinger crossbreed).

Appearance: Clean and clear in colour.

Aroma/Bouquet: Düfte Punkt is an aromatic paradigm-shift. Striking Lychee and Turkish delight aromas, followed by orange blossom, musk with a touch of rosewater.

Palate: A complex palate that is layered and luscious, showing lychees, mandarins, minerality and a lingering powder-puff of florals.

Food Pairing: Perfect with a pork roast or anything with a bit of heat and spice.
