Chaffey Bros Wine Co are modern, new wave Barossa wine makers. Headed by brothers-in-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela. They are part of a family of generational winemakers. The original Chaffey brothers were true iconoclasts and made an indelible mark on the Australian wine landscape.
They focus on handmade minimal intervention wines that come from individual parcels of low yielding vineyards, spread through the Barossa and Eden Valley. Their Synonymous Shiraz is one of their many pillars of success. Made from old vines from the Eden Valley, this range has been rated highly by critics across the wine industry.
A careful selection of established low yielding vineyards stretching from the North Barossa townships of Ebenezer and Light Pass through to Lyndoch in Southern Barossa. Matured in new and seasoned French and American oak allowing the vibrant mid-palate of dark and light fruit to come to the fore.
Deep crimson/purple in colour with a nose of cedar, spice and plum hinting at the mix of dark fruits and chocolate lurking on the rich structured palate. The wine shows powerful depth of flavour with plush lingering mouthfeel.
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.
