De Bortoli Noble One Botrytis Semillon 2006

Street Wines View:

375ml bottle.

Perhaps the most famous wine in Australia.

Darren De Bortoli created Noble One at his family winery in 1982, to this day it is still one of the most awarded wines in history and the oldest examples are sensational.  More than three decades after this pioneering Botrytis Semillon took the world by storm, internationally acclaimed Noble One remains the benchmark of Australian ‘Botrytis’ dessert winemaking.

Up until 1990, wines were matured in coarse-grained French oak puncheons produced in Australia, which gave plenty of oak character but leaked!  With effect from the 1990 vintage, tight-grained Seguin Moreau (as used by Ch. d’Yquem) has been used.
