2017 Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. Funkelpunkt Sparkling Eden Valley Riesling

Sparkling Riesling is a new wine style introduced by Chaffey Bros. as the first Eden Valley Sparkling Riesling. It is light, crisp and refreshingly aromatic; very much like the Italian Prosecco - simply delicious!

Vineyard: Grown from old vines in the Fechner family vineyard located in the northern end of Eden Valley, known as Moculta. Vineyard: 380m

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: A blend of Riesling 80%, Kerner and Gewurztraminer, co-fermented and finished with a superfine bubble.

Appearance: Pale straw in colour.

Aroma/Bouquet: Subtle aromas of tropical fruits.

Palate: Mineral notes of fresh flint, white peaches and zesty lemons explode from the glass. A light fizz on the palate that lifts this wine to a third dimension, light and refreshing.

Food Pairing: Shellfish, spicy cuisine & cheese platters.
