Vinoptima ‘Noble’ Ormond Gewurztraminer 2007

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 26-Jul-2013
Botrytised fruit hand-picked at an average of 38° Brix, destemmed and fermented in a 1,200 L German oak oval to 11.0% alc. and 180 g/L rs, the wine aged 11 months before bottling. 2007 is regarded as the ‘grand vintage’ by Nick Nobilo. Deep golden-yellow with orange hues to the colour, lighter on rim. The nose is full and densely packed with masses of ripe tropical fruits, marmalade, honey and exotic florals, unfolding layers of musk, caramel and crystalised fruits, all harmoniously entwined. Very sweet and luscious to taste, the mouthfeel is very soft and rounded, with unctuous textures and great depth and weight. A full range of exotic and decadent flavours is present, from crystalised fruits, marmalade, ginger, honey and musk. The flavours are mouthfilling and the palate very smooth flowing, with acidity low, enhancing the richness and opulence. Barley sugar, caramel and toffee notes emerge and are carried on a long, lingering finish. This is a densely packed, opulent and exotic Gewurztraminer dessert wine with unctuousness and real weight. Serve with caramel desserts and crème brulee over the next 6-8 years. (375 ml) 19.0-/20 Jul 2013 RRP $250.00
