2020 Chaffey Bros Wine Co Not Your Grandma’s Riesling Eden Valley – Chaffey Bros is brothers-in-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig & Theo Engela: part perfumiers; part historians; and part mad scientists. They craft their handmade wines from a number of epic low-yielding vineyards nestled among the pristine Barossa & Eden Valleys in South Australia. They are now joined by young gun winemaker Huon Fechner! Their wine philosophy is ‘New Wave Barossa’… Soil up. Aromatic. Textural. Unadulterated.
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.
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-long term cellaring if so desired.
