One Vineyard. Three Germanic Luminaries. One Aromatic Explosion.

Düfte Punkt is an aromatic paradigm-shift. A seamless single-vineyard blend of spicy Gewürztraminer, precise Riesling and textural Kerner (Weißer Herold). Striking lychee and turkish delight aromas introduce a complex palate showing lychees, mandarins, minerality and a lingering powder-puff of florals.

The Fechner brothers' applauded vineyard in the Eden Valley is unique for both its spectacular aromatics and its unique varietal mix. This field blend is a cofermentation consisting of Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Kerner (aka Weißer Herold) (from the only commercial Australian plantings of this Riesling-Trollinger crossbreed).

Drink it immediately with a soft (gooey even?! :) ) cheese platter or take along chilled to your next Bánh mì picnic or anything fiery off the menu at your favourite Thai spice den.

2019
91/100 "Like a stroll through a CWA shop. Rosewater and pink musk sticks, lychee fruit with citrus of dilute lime cordial, brown pear, rock salt  and a “face spray” refreshment. A textural, yet refined palate that offers above expectation fleshy breadth. Bittersweet lime pith, brown pomme all with a saline drying, long finish. Familiar, yet alien and a pleasure to enjoy." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

90 pts "Bright lemon and melon with hints of pear-drop and spiced tropical-fruit perfume. The palate has a soft, elegant and fresh feel with bright tropical-fruit and lemon flavors. A field blend of riesling, gewurztraminer and kerner." - James Suckling Reviews

90/100 "Offering instant aromatic charm, as these blends often do. Mandarin blossom, musk, lemon bitters and green apples. Oily and unctuous when sipped, bruised red apples and gewürzy rosewater. Acidity is soft and may not go the distance. Drinking beautifully now" - Nick Butler, The Real Review

2017
17.75/20 "Strap in for the ride. Lime flesh dominates the nose with key supporting elements from the lychees and spring-fed-watering-hole-clean mineral water freshness. Fennel continues to tickle and suggest, while crushed chalk dust falls. If the 2016 riesling corset managed to keep the gewürz reined in, this edition relaxes the laces a little and allows a glimpse of flesh with gusto. Lychees, limes, spice, musk…no one hates these things. Flavour finishes like crunching a “thirst” life saver…slightly chalky and zingy. Good time wine." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

91/100 "Equal contributions from riesling, gewurztraminer and weiber herold (aka kerner). The bouquet is full of exotic, scented bath powder, lychee and rose petals, the palate nodding in support, and adding acidity. Well worth a nerdy look." - James Halliday, The Wine Companion

92 Points "The sizzle of apple, the rush of lychee, the swoon of musk. This is exotic and lively, the combination charming. It feels fine. It feels pure. There's a textural element too. Any day of the week. It's good." - Campbell Mattison, The Wine Front
