Description

90TH ANNIVERSARY BLACK NOBLE
 
Variety
100% Semillon
 
Region Riverina 100% Riverina
 
Season
Black Noble has woven together both the family and variety’s history, as it is crafted from the same botrytised Semillon grapes harvested for De Bortoli’s iconic Noble One, which was developed by Darren De Bortoli and his father Deen in 1982. This limited release blend is created utilising many vintages including a portion from the original vintage of Botrytis Semillon in 1982. By blending many vintages together we capture each years nuances with an
average blended age of 20 years to deliver structure, strength and complexity.
 
Tasting Note
Dark mahogany, this complex, rich and concentrated wine is all you could ask for after many years of maturation. Flavours include toffee, molasses, bittersweet coffee liqueur and Christmas pudding spice just to name a few. Long and luscious whilst still retaining a fresh acid finish; the perfect way to wind up a meal.
 
General Characteristics
Sweet / Full bodied
 
Winemaking
Each year a small portion of Botrytis Semillon is put aside to make Black Noble. With very little fermentation then fortification with grape spirit and a touch of brandy spirit, the wine is matured in old Noble One barriques in solero\'s for many years . Senior Winemaker John Coughlan and myself assessed all these barrels and chose the best and most complex parcels to then craft this unique wine.
