Bright Golden. Alluring aromas of citrus marmalade, quince and vanilla bean with attractive oak. A medley of quince, fig, honey, crème brulee and citrus marmalade with a refreshing acidity which offsets the richness and lusciousness to give a deftly balanced finish. Nutty oak adds to the tactile layers of this wine adding to the impressive length and style.
Vineyards with a pedigree for producing fine Botrytis wines were selected for the 2013 Noble One. Each vineyard is closely monitored to ensure harvest takes place when the botrytis flavours and sweetness levels are in harmony, creating a rich and opulent wine. Each vineyard has it own unique flavour profile, so we harvest, ferment and mature each parcel of fruit separately to maximise the different layers and nuances that are the hallmark of Noble One wines.
Alc/Vol: 10.4% pH: 3.52 TA: 9.1g/L
Perfect to enjoy now or can be cellared for 20+ years.

The fruit is sourced from our a De Bortoli vineyards and anothe other vineyard who has been a long standing supplier of high quality Botrytis Semillon.
Very mild 2017 growing conditions with quite cool night time temperatures and no significant rain until mid March allowed for quite a slow sugar development. No Botrytis until the timely rain in mid to late March which kicked things off. April was mostly dry and mild with showers at the end of the month increasing the Botrytis infection to high enough levels to concentrate the sugar and flavours to allow harvest to begin. Harvest started early May and progressed for next 5 weeks into mid June. Harvesting every block at its ideal Botrytis and sugar concentration
Brilliant pale gold. Intense nose with spicy cinnamon over yellow peaches and French nougat aromas, with just a hint of burnt sugar syrup. Palate is rich, powerful and impossibly long with peaches and barley sugar flavours all kept in check by deft acidity.
A wine that can be enjoyed just on its own or with a fabulous cheese and fruit platter. But also try with freshly shucked oysters or Foie Gras.
A retro Vintage of Noble One. A throwback to the wines of the mid 80’s with higher alcohols and slightly less sugar. Wines with incredible depth and energy. A long association with each vineyard gives us the confidence on when to harvest to reach their full potential. We harvest, ferment and mature each vineyard separately in French oak Barriques for 12 months to ensure the nuances of each vineyard flavours are captured. When blended together each parcel of wine plays their role in moulding the final wine we know as Noble One.
