  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Brothers-in-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela are the latest generation of the Chaffey family to ply their vinous trade in Australia.Their hand-made, minimal intervention wines come from small parcels of low yielding vineyards spread throughout the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Drawing on true old vines and complex soils they see themselves as part parfumer - discovering delicate aromatics; part historian - preserving the purity of pristine fruit and part mad scientist - reveling in the art of small batch blending.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Fresh plum, dry spice and dried banana-like aromas, fruit-driven and fresh, with some Rhône-ish notes. The palate has linearity and fleshy concentration, with ample soft tannins and refreshing acidity. A very appealing wine, the texture being a highlight. It drinks superbly already. (single site Droegemueller Rd vineyard, Springton)

    JANE FAULKNER - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    It might be Eden Valley but using syrah on the label might raise an eyebrow. What's not in question is its drinkability. A fruit basket of berries, a raft of spices, it's juicy and so vibrant. It has tannins and acidity to ensure it'll age but gee, it's too good to wait for, so pour away.

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    The Eden Valley and shiraz/syrah. A match made in heaven. Aromatic, spicy, floral, almost peppery. It doesn’t jump out of its skin but it does stand up to say hello. Plums, toast, roasted peppercorns, nuts. It unfolds as it breathes. It’s mid weight in a good way. Complex but not challenging or in-your-face. Drinkable and accessible and yet inscribed with fine tannin. The pitch, just right.
