Appearance: Light golden.
Bouquet: A rich blend of stone fruits and citrus reveals loads of power in a rich vibrant wine, with sweet vanillin oak and spiciness adding to this lush and decadent wine.
Palate: Layers of intensely ripe botrytis fruit, creamy citrus, nectarine, honey and cumquat blended with attractive oak. Unctuous with a slight touch of refreshing acidity gives length and structure which then delivers a beautifully balanced wine.
Suggested Cuisine: Creamy lemon flans, fruit based desserts and there is no better way to finish a meal than with a cheese and fruit platter with Noble One.
General Characteristics: Sweet / Full Bodied
Vintage Conditions: The 2009 year began with hot conditions until the middle of February when we received overnight rain followed by more showers during March. This initiated the onset of botrytis, which was enhanced by showers and early morning dews during April, providing good conditions for the infection to progress with harvesting occurring over five days in the third week of May.
Winemaking: Vineyards that have regularly provided fruit for Noble One over the years were once again selected for the 2009 vintage. These vineyards consistently produce ideal botrytised Semillon fruit with sweetness, lusciousness and intense botrytis flavours synonymous with this wine. To maximise the blending options for Noble One each vineyard is harvested then fermented and matured individually. Each vineyard has unique characteristics that enhance the complexity seen in this wine.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 10.50% pH: 3.47 TA: 10.1 g/L
Cellaring: Perfect to enjoy now whilst showing its youthful characters or the wine can be cellared for the next 10-15 years.
