Vinoptima Ormond Gewurztraminer 2004 14.5%
Yellow Golden tones stretch almost to the rim where an olive oil yellow hue takes over, day bright.
Complex, honeyed, nutty, layered and mature; golden Queen peaches and apricots; caramelised apple and chef's honey comb.
The palate shows all the maturity and complexity that the nose suggests, but then it reveals layer after layer of flavor and depth - from fresh to caramelised fruits, pineapple to dried pear and mango; a pot pourri of fresh and dried rose petals; medium+(ish) acidity keeps the palate crisp; a long drifting finish; the alcohol hardly noticeable.

A pleasure to taste. Hopefully this review makes it to the Vinoptima website!
