Wine of the Week – A MUST Not Miss – Vinoptima 2004 Gewurztraminer Ormond Reserve1
Vinoptima 2004 Gewurztraminer Ormond Reserve
Robert Parker: 94 Points
We can’t think of a better wine to serve with your Thanksgiving dinner! Robert Parker wrote, “A stunning nose of honey, melted butter and lemongrass, the palate suddenly shows an upsurge in concentration with brilliant harmony and focus. It remains taut and imbued with nervosite: a great skill in such a flamboyant aromatic.”
Having steered his family company to one of New Zealand’s successful producers, Nick Nobilo could have enjoyed a peaceful retirement after the company was sold to BRL Hardy. But instead he has dedicated his life to producing New Zealand’s finest Gewurztraminer from his 9.7-hectare estate in Gisborne, split into two blocks, the first planted in 2000 and the second in 2007 using budwood that Nick had been propagating for over 25 years. The winery is so clean you could eat your breakfast off it, the 1,200L oak German oval foudres playing a key role in extracting the best out of this aromatic grape. The good news is that Nick is well on his way to achieving his dream because this was a stunning expression of Gewurztraminer, the wine adopting an Alsatian style rather than anything from the New World.
