De Bortoli Noble One Botrytis Semillon 2017 37.5cl 10% ABV
Since its creation in 1982, Noble One has gone on to be one of the most awarded wines in history with more tha 117 trophies and 376 Gold medals both nationally and internationally. The grapes are selected from vineyards with long histories of producing Botrytis Semillon given the right weather conditions. The grapes are hand harvested and slowly pressed and fermented - this can take anywhere between 3 weeks to 6 months. Between 80-90% if aged in French oak for 12 months at 15 degress and the remainder is left in the tank.
The result is an expressive wine with sweet aromas of nectarines, apricots, mandarin peel and vanilla. The botrytis fruit flavours shine through such as citrus, butterscotch and pineapple creating a long, alluring palate. This dessert wine pairs excellently with stilton cheese or a pear and almond tart.
