2018 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: Eden Valley received good winter rains which set the growing season off to a good start. Flowering was consistent with bunches setting well and generous quantities expected. Summer was warm and dry with the added benefit of Eden Valley's high altitude allowing cool evening's and breezes to assist with wine grapes maintaining freshness and high levels of natural acidity

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.
