Region: Riverina, NSW
Appearance: Amber with olive green hues.
Bouquet: Hints of toffee and coffee with raisins and mandarin peel.
Palate: Unique and delicious, rich raisin and dried date fruit with hints of citrus peel, toffee and caramel flavours. Concentrated and viscous with lingering aged complexity.
Winemaking: When the botrytised Semillon grapes are being harvested for Noble One, a parcel of fruit at approx 20-22 baume is selected to produce the Black Noble intense and ripe botrytis flavours. Very little fermentation occurs before fortification with a neutral grape spirit is added to inhibit any further fermentation. Black Noble is then clarified, a touch of brandy spirit added for further complexity before being transferred into used Noble One barriques.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 17.5 % pH: 3.47 TA: 10.3 g/L
Cellaring: The wine has been aged in barrel and is designed for current consumption but will keep in the bottle for several years.
Suggested Cuisine: Enjoy with Christmas pudding or sticky date pudding. Try poured over vanilla ice cream or with a cheese platter after dinner.
