Brothers-in-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela are the latest generation of the Chaffey family to ply their vinous trade in Australia. The original Chaffey brothers (Canadian Hydro Engineers) were true iconoclasts. They arrived in Australia in 1886 and proceeded (along with a number of their descendants) to make an indelible mark on the Australian wine landscape.
"This straw-coloured rascal is a three way blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and the rare Weisser Herold (aka Kerner), all out of the one old vineyard. It's co-fermented, at first playing it's Riesling card with lime florals and aromatics, though the more exotic gewurztraminer comes out of it's shell as you go They do, perhaps, add to this wine's fabulous texture: chalky, pithy and peppery/spicy with a lingering, mouth watering result. One of this summer's surprise aromatic whites” - Tony Love (National Wine Writer news.com.au)
Riesling 34%, Gewurtztraminer 33%, Kerner 32%
