*Blossom point. From the Fechner family vineyard in Moculta, Eden Valley. 24 hours skin contact during the making. Unfined.

I’m a sucker for the aromatics on Gewürztraminer : 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.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
