Reviews & Awards: Not trying to be anything but the vivacious variety that comes with the territory. Scents of rose water, peach, sweet citrus and citrus blossoms. Lovely. The palate is fleshy and juicy at once, finishes slightly nutty and the wine carries heaps of flavour very well. A good vibe here. 92 points - Mike Bennie, WBM "Im a sucker for the aromatics on Gewurztraminer : the rich softness of rosewater and musk here is balanced by talc, crushed pink salt with pink grapefruit and nettle prickle. The time on skins gives depth to the palate while the natural acidity keeps it zesty and bright. All that sweetness on the nose is somewhat of a facade as this finishes chalky and dry." 92 points - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook "Varietal gewurztraminer from the Eden Valley. Bluhen Punkt translates to Blossom Point. Texture plus. All about mouthfeel. Orange oil and blossom, some lime, some lychee. Rosewater and a good deal of it. Much pleasure to be had here." 91 points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
