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.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 3 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2008 vintage, Olly Smith said: "Luscious sweet vino like a magnificent mango. Stick a bottle in the fridge and serve it with a blue cheese for a mesmerising contrast of flavours."

Olly Smith - Live Magazine, Mail on Sunday 03/03/2013

Of the 2008 vintage, Olly Smith said: "Peachy sweet wine that's divine served chilled with a slice of blue cheese. Unleash the Roquefort."

Olly Smith - Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday 20/10/2013

Of the 2008 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "De Bortoli's beautiful, gilded pudding wine semillons should be on every festive table to sip with all those Christmas sweetmeats, including glacé fruit, moscatel raisins, sugared grapes, mince pies and chocolate. Unlike French stickies, the Aussie equivalents have more oomph and staying power. All your guests are going to love this luscious, creamy, baked peach and creme brulee of a dessert wine."

Jane MacQuitty - The Times 07/12/2013

Of the 2008 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "Boasting flavours of marmalade, caramel and burnt toffee, this very sweet wine is beautfully balanced."

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 14/12/2013

Of the 2008 vintage, Helen McGinn said: "Small but perfectly formed, this is a force of nature. Like the Monbazillac, noble rot has played a part concentrating the flavours and adding an intense sugar hit. Tastes of baked apricots. Sublime."

Helen McGinn - Daily Mail 21/12/2013

Of the 2008 vintage, Olly Smith said: “Salty Roquefort is great with a cool glass of Tesco finest* Dessert Semillon.”

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.
