Description

Founder and winemaker Darren De Bortoli created Noble One in 1928 and since then this wine has amassed over 150 Trophies and 465 Gold Medals. This dessert wine is made using heavily botrytized Semillon, just like the famed French Sauternes resulting in an intensely sweet, viscous and complex wine. The 2016 vintage was perfect for creating this often-fickle wine, very warm, humid days followed by long warm dry periods - only the very best, dried shrivelled fruit was harvested over a 4-week period. This impressive wine can be enjoyed with pungent cheese upon release or cellared through 20+ years.

Smells

Intense concentration of honey comb, candied stoned fruit, molasses, dried pawpaw, and subtle French oak notes of vanilla and cinnamon

Tastes

Rich, viscous, opulent and very descendant with intensely sweet notes of honey tropical fruit, balancing acidity (needed in a wine like this), honeycomb and passionfruit syrup.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
