2019 Chaffey Bros Wine Co. Tripelpunkt

Barossa - Eden Valley Riesling

Background: Tripelpunkt in physics is the thermodynamic conditions at which the solid, liquid and gaseous phases a substance coexisting equilibrium - The quest for precision, texture & balance. Well, the Chaffey team love science, which is what wine making is. Tripel meaning three and punkt meaning point. It is three points where the connection of quality Riesling grapes have been mastered to create a point in time - Tripelpunkt!

Vineyard: The Riesling grapes are sourced from three exceptional vineyards in the Eden Valley area.

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: Handpicked, whole bunched pressed and skin contact for 18 hours.

Appearance: A subtle green hue, yet almost transparent.

Aroma/Bouquet: Jasmine, honeysuckle and mandarin which float from the glass.

Palate: A delicate texture, evolving to a soft and textural mineral finish with a subtle and refreshing edge.

Food Pairing: A fantastic match for Asian cuisines and seafood, or just sit back and relax with a glass on its own.
