Around the world….around the world….around the world…oh wait, that’s Daft Punk. Anyway this one translates to “The Aromatic Point.” Made from Riesling, Gewürztraminer and the uncommon Kerner (Weisser Herold) from the Fechner Vineyard. Described as “One Vineyard. Three Germanic Luminaries. One Aromatic Explosion.” Co-fermented and bottled un-fined. Winemakers Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela and Huon Fechner.
Chaffey Bros. Wine Co., DÜFTE PUNKT, Eden Valley, 2021
Such a potently fragrant blend. Hyper rosewater/ Turkish Delight intertwined with soft honey, lime sorbet, green mango, pear flesh and crushed salt. The palate tighter and more focused than the nose: steely and ramrod straight with just waxy phenolics offering a buffer sprinkled with pepper and salt spice. Add to your favourite chilli heat S-E Asian foods.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
