Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela are the latest generation of the Chaffey family to ply their vinous trade in Australia. The original Chaffey Brothers were Canadian hydro engineers, true iconoclasts within their field of endeavour. They arrived in Australia 1886 and proceeded, along with a number of their decendants, to make an indelible mark on the Australian wine landscape. Chaffey Bros handmade minimal intervention wines come from individual parcels of low yielding vineyards, spread throughout the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Drawing on true old vines and complex soils, the modern day Chaffeys see themselves as parfumiers discovering delicate aromatics, part historians, preserving the purity of pristine fruit, part mad scientists, revelling in the lost art of small batch blending. Old vines of Eden Valley Riesling and Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz are the building blocks, the timeless pillars of great great wines.
