Chaffey Bros Wine Co. has delivered a new and exciting Grenache style wine to the Barossa scene. One of Barossa oldest red wine varieties Grenache (Garnacha) is set to be the most sort after wine styles this year.
Fruity with a light and luscious palate. Flavours of rose, Turkish delight, raspberries and fairy floss but clean and dry. It certainly hits the spot for those looking for something uncomplicated or a dinner party starter.
Vineyard: Cutting edge viticulture teamed with exceptional wine making has delivered a superb Shiraz from the Barossa's beautiful high country - Eden Valley. The vineyard is constantly monitored and managed to deliver premium Shiraz grapes.
Season: The dry weather meant that when the night time temperature dipped allowing late frosts, but thankfully not damaging Eden Valley. December and early January was warm but rain at the end of January and early March were welcomed. Along with milder weather, the Shiraz fruit ripened and delivered an exceptional vintage.
Winemaking: Open fermented, basket pressed and matured in French oak barriques from bespoke coopers.
Appearance: Intense rich brick red
Aroma/Bouquet: The aroma is an astonishing and lifted brace of blackberries, spice and a perfume like touch of blueberries. Pure fruit and spice, that is not in any way overwhelmed by wine making artefact. The wine has a concentration of aromas that come from quality Barossa fruit. The aromas change quickly in the glass and are fascinating to follow but the mouth beckons.
Palate: A seamless soft but structured Shiraz, concentrated blackberries with a mid-palate of dark chocolate and spice. Textured length and spice from the French Oak and a chalk like tannin structure.
Food Pairing: Slow cooked Beef cheeks, hearty Mushroom Risotto, Guinness and Beef pie…
Residual Sugar: NA
Cellar potential: 20+ years
Winemaker: Elena Brooks, BSc (Oenology) Adelaide
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.Alcohol: 12%
