Subtitled “The Aromatic Point” as its translation. Described as “One Vineyard. Three Germanic Luminaries. One Aromatic Explosion” the fruit is from the Fechner Vineyard in the Eden Valley. Made from Riesling, Gewürztraminer and the not so often seen Kerner (Weisser Herold). Co-fermented and bottled un-fined. Winemakers are Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela.

Like a stroll through a CWA shop. Rosewater and pink musk sticks, lychee fruit with citrus of dilute lime cordial, brown pear, rock salt and a “face spray” refreshment. A textural, yet refined palate that offers above expectation fleshy breadth. Bittersweet lime pith, brown pomme all with a saline drying, long finish. Familiar, yet alien and a pleasure to enjoy.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
