Vinification Details

  • Fruit is left on the vines to become very ripe before harvesting at 16-18 Baume. Once harvested the fruit is crushed, partially fermented then fortified on skins to further extract the floral and aromatic flavours from the fruit. The wine is pressed off skins and then transferred to barrels for maturation.

History

  • What's not to love? 2015 IWC Trophy winner and Jane Macquitty describes it as "gorgeous! With 8 years ageing in barrel this is luscious with rich dried fruit and caramel flavours."

Regional Information

  • De Bortoli Wines has an extensive collection of aged wine stocks maturing in barrel. The winemakers draw from these barrels to blend the premium fortified wines including the unique Black Noble. This award winning selection of luscious wines are beautifully packaged in premium gift cylinders.
