Each year we leave Semillon grapes in the same vineyards for the botrytis to take hold and impart amazing flavours and sweetness to the fruit. The juice is fermented in tank for 4-8 weeks at 13-15°C. Each vineyard is kept separate during fermentation and maturation, then just prior to bottling the wine is blended with careful consideration of each parcel.
De Bortoli Wines is a 3rd generation family business established by Vittorio & Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. In 1952, Vittorio's son Deen, joined and energetically expanded the company, implementing many innovations and new wine styles, embracing new technology and viticultural practices. In the 80s Deen and his son Darren made a sweet white wine from botrytised Semillon called 'Noble One', now Australia’s benchmark sweet white wine. This wine is made using the same principals.
The Riverina enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate. The sandy loam soils vary in colour from red sandy earths to brown clay loams. The De Bortoli Bilbul winery in the Riverina is the birthplace of icon dessert wine Noble One, developed by Darren De Bortoli in the 1980s which, since its release, has been awarded more than 100 Trophies and 345 Gold Medals. Climatic conditions allow the development of ‘noble rot’ to occur, providing the opportunity to make complex sweet white wines.
