Tasting Notes

Gold medal winning wine.

If you've got pudding to match, or need a wine to match with blue cheese, try this one for size.

The bottle might be small but the flavours are huge: apricot, honey and peach all wrapped in luscious sweetness.

Made by De Bortoli, one of Australia's very best producers of sweet wines.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2009 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "This sweetie is one of the most reliably stunning, year in, year out, because it's made by Semillon geniuses De Bortoli. Whip up the Cherry Pavlova (above) and then pour chilled glasses of this heavenly elixir."

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 15/11/2014

Of the 2009 vintage, Victoria Moore said: “It’s not a sauternes…but it is a botryised dessert wine made with one of the sauternes grapes, Semillon, in Australia, where it’s produced for Tesco by De Bortoli. Reminiscent of the sticky crumbs in a lemon and orange Madeira drizzle cake. Quite remarkable value too.”

Victoria Moore - Daily Telegraph Weekend 13/12/2014

Background

History

De Bortoli Wines is a 3rd generation Australian family wine company established by Italian emigrants Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. Their son Deen (1936 – 2003) expanded and consolidated the business and now his children have established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One. Italian family values remain core; there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.

Regional info

The Riverina region enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate with winter dominant rainfall. Sandy loam soils vary in colour and structure from red sandy earths to brown clay loams. The Bilbul winery in the Riverina is the birthplace of icon dessert wine Noble One, developed by Darren De Bortoli in 1982 which since its release has been awarded 117 trophies and 376 Gold medals. Climatic conditions allow the development of 'noble rot' to occur, providing the opportunity to make complex sweet white wines.
