Fechner Vineyard experienced near perfect ripening conditions for Gewürztraminer in January, the early start to Spring and Summer meant we picked all three varieties earlier than last year. Late January Rainfall heralded a mild February allowing the East facing Riesling and Weißer Herold block to ripen progressively whilst retaining great natural acidity.
The Fechner brothers’ applauded vineyard is unique for both its spectacular aromatics and unique varietal mix. The blend is 41% hand picked, whole bunch pressed Riesling combined with 38% Gewürztraminer given 12 hours skin contact prior to pressing and 21% Weißer Herold. The cold settled juice parcels were racked without fining prior to co-fermentation to maximise complexity.
Düfte Punkt is an aromatic paradigm-shift. A seamless single-vineyard blend of precise Riesling, spicy Gewürztraminer, and textural Weißer Herold. Striking lychee and turkish delight aromas introduce a complex palate showing lychees, mandarins, minerality and lingering powder-puff of florals.
Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

Clear, pale lemon.
This wine smells like fresh-cut grass, mouth-watering pineapple sorbet and juicy green apples.
It lands on the palate with a lime soda effervescence followed by guava and apple juice characters.

Apple blossom, yellow peach and gentle baking spices in a mouth filling yet gentle delivery on the palate.
Drinking wonderfully now, with strong ageing potential over the next 5-7 years.
A limited release chardonnay from two selected Piccadilly Valley sites. Ferment was sparked by indigenous yeasts and the wine aged in Burgundian oak (predominantly puncheons) both old and new for eight months.Nose
White peach and fresh green apple along with Jasmin, Crème Brulee and a hint of spice from French oak.Mouth
Yellow peach and stone fruits are carried across the palate by a mouth-watering acid drive. A hint of lemon pith phenolics provides the wine with lovely texture.
