18.25/20 "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." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook
91pts "Varietal gewürztraminer from the Eden Valley. Blumen Punkt translates to Blossom Point. Nice. This is the first release of this wine. It saw 24 hours skin contact. It’s both racy and floral, its lychee and rosewater aromas/flavours zipped along in fast, mouthwatering fashion, the finish then textural-bordering-on-grippy. Pleasant plus. Most enjoyable. Fresh, characterful and elegant" Campbell Mattison, Wine Front
90pts "Has above average varietal expression on the bouquet and palate, with exotic spice, berry, rosewater and confection notes." Halliday Wine Companion
