Vinoptima Gewurztramier 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromatic, wild and exotic fruits and spices with a luscious lingering finish. The Vinoptima Gewurztraminer is golden in color and exhibits luscious aromas of lychees, melon fruits and scented honey. The wine displays intense fruit sweetness yet the finish is drier than would be expected, allowing the most complex and exotic array of tropical fruit flavors, accentuated by pineapple and mandarin orange to shine through. The fruit flavors are perfectly balanced with delicate spicy accents of nutmeg and vanilla. Vinoptima Gewurztraminer is an extremely versatile food wine that will compliment a variety of dishes, however it is the enjoyment of the wine that should be paramount. Recommended pairings include exotic food dishes, including Southeast Asian and Indian cuisine, lightly spiced pacific-rim fusion food, pork, seafood, poultry and char-grilled vegetables, and the traditional foie gras and melba toast. Vinoptima Gewurztraminer can also be enjoyed with light fruity deserts. The flavorsome and refreshing character of Vinoptima Gewurztraminer also renders it an excellent aperitif. Gewurztraminer is one of the very few white varietals that will age successfully over many years and become quite unctuous and oily and delicious to savor.

At least one aspect of creating a world class estate was going to be easy - deciding on the vines. Vinoptima Estate was developed for one reason only - the making of great Gewurztraminer wines - so simply don’t plant anything else. In 2000 the original South block was meticulously planted out using bud wood from special clones of Gewurztraminer that I had begun selecting and propagating more than 25 years earlier. Since then, as the new vines have started producing, I’ve painstakingly evaluated each of the clones at ripeness, fastidiously tasting the berries from hundreds of vines and marking out for special attention those vines that display the best varietal character. This process has been replicated over several vintages, making selections from selections before taking bud wood from the best vines for further propagation and under-planting of the existing vines. It’s these new plantings that have subsequently gone on to produce the wines that consistently win international recognition. To meet the growing demand and optimise all aspects of the winemaking process, additional vines were planted on the North block of the Vinoptima Estate in 2007. The newer block is characterised by near identical soil composition and structure and if anything, is slightly warmer and drier than the original block. The North block has also been planted with a range of premium Gewurztraminer clones. The Vinoptima Estate is constantly evolving with vines and clones changing in the continuous pursuit of the world’s best Gewurztraminer. Read less

On the nose, developed aromas of white flowers and honey. The wine seems to have lost with time its tropical fruit style and aged with rounder aromas. The residual sugar is quite high, but not overly, which gives an enjoyable luscious structure in the mouth. A good presence of acohol on the mid palate, followed by a lasting length of honey and orange flavours. QC

Stunning white,now shows buttery, orange zest, honey suckle and marmalade notes. Full and rich mouth feeling but cutter freshly with vibrant acidity and a zesty peel bitterness. Round and powerful.

The extraordinary 2004 Gewurztraminer Noble Late Harvest is a legend in the making. Produced from six rows which Nick Nobilo left on until June, when the vines had shed their leaves, coming in at 12.8 alcohol and 117 grams residual sugar. A limpid go...
