One Vineyard. Three Germanic Luminaries... Düfte Punkt is an aromatic paradigm-shift. A seamless single vineyard field blend of spicy Gewürztraminer, precise Riesling and textural Kerner (Weißer Herold). Striking tropical 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 wines screams food and good times... and now the incredible 10th vintage 2023 release is here! 

Drink it anytime with a soft (gooey even?! :) ) cheese platter or enjoy with any fiery spice laden dish from your local Thai spice den.

Katie Spain (The Age/SMH) says... "Pro tip - The Chaffey Bros. Dufte Punkt (a single-vineyard field blend of gewurztraminer, riesling and kerner) holds its own with fresh, spicy Asian dishes. Bang it on the lazy Susan and let the good times roll."

93pts "A funky field blend of co-fermented riesling, gewürztraminer and kerner from the Fechner vineyard. Light straw in the glass with heady aromas of citrus, peach skin and poached pear along with hints of Turkish delight, mineral salts, pressed wildflowers, clotted cream and almond paste. Über-slinky and textural on the palate with citrus and yellow plum fruits expanding then contracting with a tight flex of nervy acidity propelling long, perfumed and savoury on the exit." - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion“


94pts "I like the name and I like the wine. A real Germanic fruit salad-esque blend here of riesling, gewürztraminer & kerner, from the cool climes of the Eden Valley. Straw in the glass with heady aromas of lime & citrus, Turkish delight, crushed stone,white flowers, rose petals & almond paste. Textural, stony, sapid & pure, it cuts a lovely line on the palate, sashaying with a confident & delicious gait. Finishes dry and crisp, like sucking on a river pebble...if you’re into that. Regardless, it’s lovely." Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion

91pts "Hyper floral is the signature for this label. A mélange of rosewater, minerally pink salt, pink grapefruit, honeycomb, native blossom, lime zest, pear and lychee. The just viscous and creamy weight off-set by salty spice and spiky acidity. Bittersweet citrus  lingers. Such a unique blend that absolutely comes into its own with spiced SE-Asian foods." - Regan Drew, vinonotebook.com

"Light straw-yellow hue with a bath-powder gewürz note uppermost, and the wine is slightly off-dry, the sweetness coupled with tannins to leave a bitter orange-peel aftertaste. This is different!" - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

92/100 "Big hit of lime juice and fruit, pink rock salt, poached pear, grapefruit, mango chutney, rosewater and Turkish Delight “dust.”  With weight and viscosity and dry spice from the Gewurz (and a touch of the Kerner) and thrust from the Riesling. Fleshier than one expects and a far drier experience than the nose suggests, there’s just a little phenolic textural chew that provides versatility. Continues the signature label saline, quinine-esque and grapefruit bittersweet finish. Unique and worthy." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

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

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

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 Mattinson, The Wine Front

17.5/20 "Firstly, I really dig the packaging. Modern without being obtuse and eye grabbing without being kitsch. And some latitude/longitude for GPS geeks. Wonderfully aromatic…think all the just washed soft bits: there’s rosewater and bath talc and lychee along with clean lines of minerally lime and white rocks. It tickles the nose a little with fennel and bitter quinine/tonic too. The juxtaposition on the palate is almost hypnotic as the gewürz Rubenesque fleshiness gets corseted in by riesling, all whalebone-tight. Fruit and texture in very good balance. Screams food wine and great company." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

Adelaide Review's HOT100 Wine for the third consecutive year! "Beautiful cold tea and flowers. Delicate palate and length with a touch of green strawberry and herb."

92 pts "The Chaffey Bros wines always feel so harmonious. They glide through the mouth. This boasts a crunch of apple and a crackle of slate, but it slips and slides beautifully through your mouth. There’s a whisper of red apple-like sweetness/perfume and a gunsmoke-like note, along with a kaffir lime character. It’s an explosion of aroma, sure, but it’s also elegance personified"- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

Adelaide Review's Hot 100 Wine for the second consecutive year!

93/100 "41/38/21% co-fermented blend of riesling, gewurztraminer and wei?er herold. It lives up to its billing as an aromatic blend. Rosewater, lychee, Granny Smith apple and citrus notes rush the nose and mouth. Lots of texture this year, and an associated impression of richness. Crisp/fresh context. No question of its quality." - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday

Adelaide Review's Hot 100 Wine "Grapefruit, wet stone and juniper. Lifted aromatics provide real interest. Nice core of fruit and a mouthwatering finish."
