This one comes out in translation to a “blossom point.” From the Fechner family vineyard in Moculta, Eden Valley. 24 hours skin contact during the making.

Oh so pretty! Lush rosewater and Turkish Delight….like biting deep into the dusted little pink cubes that never seem to go stale. Add some musk stick, with a citrus leaf lift, lime skin and paw paw. It may be all blossom on the nose, but the palate underscores the serious intent of the wine. Whilst there’s pink fruit aplenty, it finishes long and dry with bittersweet citrus and hints of dried tropical fruits. Complexity is borne from skin contact and provides a great counterpoint to the olfactory good times. A slightly wax send off reinforces the varietal strengths. Delicious.
