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.

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
