Riesling

2017 Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. Duftepunkt 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: A late vintage compared to previous years. Cooler days and nights, which meant the flavours were more concentrated due to a longer ripening period.

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.
