In 1982, at the De Bortoli family winery, Darren De Bortoli masterminded the creation of Noble One—a venture that has withstood the test of time. To this very day, it continues to stand out as one of the most celebrated wines in history. Emerging over three decades ago, this pioneering Botrytis Semillon captured global attention and garnered international acclaim, firmly establishing Noble One as the quintessential example of Australian ‘Botrytis’ dessert winemaking. The recently unveiled 2019 vintage gracefully carries on the proud tradition of this award-winning masterpiece.

Each year's weather throws a challenge when making Botrytis wines and 2019 was no different, no rain until late March when Botrytis was initiated in the vineyards but it was stalled until late April when we received a deluge of rain and quickly needed to harvest the fruit as the Botrytis spread through the vineyard expeditiously. Harvest took place over a two week period during mid May.

Patience is the key to making a Botrytis wine, waiting for the grapes to be ready to harvest, fermenting the wine, then maturing in barrel for 12 months. At this time we assess each individual vineyard that has been nurtured through this period and blend the very best components to yield a friendship between fruit and oak, sweetness and acidity.

Gleaming golden colour with aromas of honeyed peaches and a touch of burnt sugar. Very viscous in the mouth with a barley sugar element alongside that luscious peachy fruit. Plenty of drive and acidity here propelling the sweetness forward into a wonderfully long finish.

Deep golden colour. The bouquet is rich and toffee-like, with some oyster-shell and seaside, ozone overtones. Toast and vanilla latte, a subtle trace of oak barrel. The wine is quite sweet and fluid, without quite the oiliness of the more heavily botrytised wines. The finish is dried by a touch of tannin. Very attractive and multi-faceted flavours and beautiful balance. A more elegant iteration of the Riverina style.
