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 its spectacular aromatics and unique varietal mix. This wine screams food and good times.

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.

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.
A very unusual Australian dry white. Tropical-flower, hibiscus and honeysuckle aromas are married to a creamy medium body with moderate acidity and a touch of grapefruit pith-like bitterness on the palate. A field blend of riesling, gewurztraminer and kerner.
