Produced from 100% botrytis infected Semillon, the Noble One was matured in 33% new French oak barriques, 47% in one and two year old French oak barriques with the remaining 20% unoaked. It is profoundly scented of orange marmalade, clover honey, preserved ginger and fragrant musk with hints of dried apricots, jasmine and toast.
Very sweet, concentrated and rich in the mouth (201 grams per liter of residual sugar), it has a good backbone of very crisp acid cutting through the opulence, finishing long and layered. Delicious now, it should keep to 2022+. This is last of the 500ml bottling.
Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion: ‘Mid-orange, green hue; a hedonistic bouquet of apricot jam, biscuit dough, cinnamon and clove; the palate is extremely sweet, unctuous and long, with the caramel sugar lingering for a staggeringly long time; be prepared, this is sure to take you on a ride.’
