Bond Road Ormond Gewurztraminer 2009

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 26-Jul-2013
The inaugural release of a second tier to ‘Vinoptima’ named in honour of the original site of the Gewurztraminer plantings for Nobilos. Hand-picked fruit given some skin contact and fermented in stainless-steel and large German oak foudres to 14.0% alc. and 13.9 g/L rs. Bright, golden-hued straw yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on rim. The bouquet is full, broad and even with lifted aromatics and esters, exotic florals, hints of tropical fruits and honey, revealing spices, ginger and creaming soda notes. Medium in sweetness, the flavours of exotic tropical fruits, Turkish Delight and lifted florals are restrained in expression, but show with rich lusciousness, weight and depth. There is a dense core driven by alcoholic power, but this is balanced by underlying acidity which balances the richness, resulting in a fine creamy texture. The weight and flavours carry through to a solid and fulsome finish with honey and creaming soda flavours that linger. This is a full, rich and weighty Gewurztraminer with lifted and exotic fruit and fine, balanced, creamy textures. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4-5+ years. 18.0+/20 Jul 2013 RRP $56.00
