Overview

Made from Semillon fortified with brandy spirit, this treacle-like dessert wine is begging to be drizzled over sticky date pudding or vanilla ice cream. The Black Noble has been aged in the barrel for 10 years, giving it a concentrated sweetness reminiscent of dried dates and raisins, with a hint of chocolate and toffee.

An absolutely beautiful wine!

Expert Reviews

Absolutely unique wine, tasting the same with this bottling, with its own outlandish charm - and drinkability. Dark aged mahogany; an absolutely unique barrel-aged botrytis semillon (ex Noble One) with hyper-intense fruit cleansed by its volatile acidity - counterintuitive, of course. Overall, a sauvage note to its unique mouthfeel. 500ml. James Halliday, Rating 94, 27th July 2015

A rare bird, with impressively sweet balance and freshness, showing walnut, white chocolate, brown sugar and exotic spice hints that linger on the open-weave finish. Semillon made into a fortified wine and aged. Drink now. Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator (USA), July 2014, Rating 93.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Amber with olive green hues.

Aroma

Hints of toffee and coffee with raisins and mandarin peel.

Palate

Unique and delicious, rich raisin and dried date fruit with hints of citrus peel, toffee and caramel flavours. Concentrated and viscous with lingering aged complexity.

Cellaring Potential

The wine has been aged in barrel and is designed for current consumption but will keep in the bottle for several years.

Food Matching

Enjoy with Christmas pudding or sticky date pudding. Try poured over vanilla ice cream or with a cheese platter after dinner.

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.

Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.

Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.
