2018 Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. Kontrapunkt - Eden Valley Kerner

Barossa - Eden Valley Kerner

Vineyard:  - 100% Kerner (A.K.A. Weißer Herold) grown on a single estate in the Fechner vineyard, Northern Eden Valley/Barossa region.

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
