2010 Vinoptima Ormond Reserve Gewurztraminer

One man's single-minded mission to produce one of the world's greatest Gewürztraminers. A wine at its peak drinking window. This is the fascinating project of Nick Nobilo.


Welcome to Vinoptima, the world’s best Gewurztraminer.

About The Wine

The Vinoptima project was an ambitious one.

Noted NZ wine personality Nick Nobilo set out to craft one of the world's most elite Gewürztraminers. He planted what he thought would be the ideal vineyard. Set up a state-of-the-art winery. He went whole-hog.

The winery no longer exists, but the wines he produced were extraordinary.

This is drinking right at its peak. The years of bottle development concentrating the luscious fruit flavours and picking up plenty of honeyed, toasty notes in the process. 

It's every bit the insane drinking experience you might expect. Please note, the wine should be consumed in a single sitting.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Producing a wine worthy of comparison with the best in the world requires detailed research and planning. But to create a wine of true distinction, the day-to-day commitment of an experienced and dedicated winemaker is absolutely vital.

That’s why every stage, from initial bud-set right through to the harvest is carefully monitored by Nick Nobilo. His over 40 years of experience governs even the tiniest detail and this belief in the superiority of a ‘handcrafted’ wine impacts on every step in the winemaking process. The harvesting and handling of the grapes is done entirely by hand to ensure the precious, ripe bunches arrive undamaged at the winery and in optimum condition for the start of the winemaking process. Each batch of grapes is processed individually and only when the winemaking is complete does the final blending take place.

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?
