Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. are winemaking brothers-in-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela. Daniel is the most recent of the Chaffey descendants to ply their ancient trade.
Barossa born and bred, he was immersed in the wine business from an early age and spent 11 years working as a wine consultant to Australia’s leading winemakers.
The creation of Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. represents the fruition of a life long dream. In 2012, Daniel was joined by brother-in-law Theo as the other “Chaffey Brother”. Their wines make statements as bold as the avant-garde labels! Minimal intervention winemaking emphasises pure structured fruit and utilises the lost art of judicious small batch blending. The results epitomise the new style of Barossa and Eden Valleys.
The Eden Valley is a unique region where the Riesling vine can interpret the rocky soils with an extraordinary interplay of floral aromas, steely minerality and lemon and lime acidity.
This expressive grape rewards winemaking restraint to deliver detailed and compelling flavours. The resulting wine retains a purity of fruit that accurately reflects how delicious the ripe grapes are on the vine.
