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.
Refreshing green apple, mint and pineapple.
Driven by lemon and passionfruit, the acid is clean and gentle, balanced by a slightly grapefruit sweetness at the end of the palate.

Grapes for this single vineyard wine were hand harvested on March 12 from two small blocks on our Uley vineyard at the northern end of the Piccadilly Valley.
Initial juice analysis showed a Baumé of 11.6 degrees, pH 3.09 and titratable acid of 7.7 g/litre. After crushing and gentle pressing, the juice was fermented to dryness at low temperatures to enhance fresh fruit characters.Following stabilisation in tank, the wine was filtered and bottled on 2nd July 2019. Alcohol 12.5%.
Classically varietal and aromatic, the wine displays citrus, pear, guava, elderflower, herbaceous and faint grassy aromas followed by a generous palate with persistent fruit flavours, minerality and crispness and a spicy, tingling finish from the natural grape acidity.
