Overview

Darren De Bortoli created Noble One at our family winery in 1982, to this day it is still one of the most awarded

wines in history. 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.

Vineyards include the Chauncy block of Semillon, which was the last vineyard of Semillon for Botrytis that Deen De Bortoli planted before his passing. Also the Cercone block of Botrytis Semillon, which is one of the original blocks used for Noble One.

Harvest took place in May following an excellent growing season with rain during Summer initiating the Botrytis in the vineyard but a dry March allowed the fruit to hold status quo in Botrytis development. Showers during April along with some foggy mornings provided ideal conditions for the Botrytis infection to escalate until the combination of flavour and sweetness were most favourable for harvest to begin.

Expert Reviews

De Bortoli’s Riverina autumn climate is tailor-made for botrytis, resulting in this exceptionally complex, unctuously sweet wine, acidity providing the all-important balance. Rating: 95 points James Halliday The Weekend Australian November 2018

Winery Tasting Notes

Pale golden in colour with an explosion of stone fruits and citrus. Layers of nuttiness and soft vanillin, backed with a refreshing acidity to create wine of harmony and elegance.

A wine that can be enjoyed with many desserts such as MillieFeuille or an exotic fruit sorbet. A classic partner to a cheese and fruit platter. This style of wine also pairs with entrees of smoked duck or freshly sautéed scallops with pear and truffle.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

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.
