Description

Chaffey Bros Düfte Punkt Aromatic Blend 2016


Chaffey Bros "Düfte Punkt" 2016 grape varieties: 39% Riesling, 38% Gewürtztraminer and 24% Kerner.
Funky, fun and ultra aromatic. Striking lychee and Turkish Delight aromas with a lingering powder-puff of florals. Light and fresh. A candied tropical and citrus fruit character with a mineral backbone. The complex palate is quite dry and has a lively refreshing acidity.

A seamless single vineyard blend. The Fechner brothers' vineyard is unique for its spectacular aromatics and varietal mix. Hand-picking and whole bunch pressing each variety separately. The Gewürtztraminer is given 18 hours skin contact prior to pressing. The cold settled juice parcels are racked without fining prior to co-fermentation to maximise complexity.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 A triple treat with spice, lychees and Turkish Delight aromas of the gewurztraminer to the fore, riesling's racy acidity driving this and the kerner adding preserved lemons, body and grip.

The 2016 vintage marked three years in a row in the HOT100 Wines SA competition

 Light, medium yellow colour, with a pronounced gewürzy fragrance which summons frangipani and other tropical flowers. Hints of honey and apricot. The palate is soft and round, not a classic riesling 'shape'. An obvious and well-managed blend of aromatic varieties
