  • THE BRIEF
  • 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 Riesling 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.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • A single Springton vineyard picked on two separate dates to capture both natural acidity/freshness and intensity of flavour. The two parcels were then cold fermented in a stainless steel tank to preserve purity of fruit then bottled with only a minimal addition of sulphur dioxide.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Floral, lemon/lime and lychee aromas are followed by intense apple, lime and orange blossom on the palate. The wine has great length of palate with the soft refreshing acidity balancing the intensity of fruit and providing the backbone to enable medium to long term cellaring if so desired.

  • 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


    Light, bright yellow colour, with a green kaffir lime and crushed herb aromas, the palate delicate and refined, with tension and length and a trace of phenolic grip that adds to its texture and persistence. A tickle of sweetness, too. Slaty, fine and long.'
