De Bortoli Noble One Botrytis Semillon is Australia's best known sticky. This multiple gold medal-winning drop is a throwback to the wines of the mid-80s with higher alcohols and slightly less sugar. Dripping with barley sugar and peach sweetness on the palate but kept in balance thanks to its deft acidity. A retro drop enjoyed now or over the next ten to fifteen years.

Brilliant pale gold.

Nose

Intense nose with spicy cinnamon over yellow peaches and French nougat aromas, with just a hint of burnt sugar syrup.

Palate

Palate is rich, powerful and impossibly long with peaches and barley sugar flavours all kept in check by deft acidity.

Background

Very mild 2017 growing conditions with quite cool night time temperatures and no significant rain until mid March allowed for quite a slow sugar development. No Botrytis until the timely rain in mid to late March which kicked things off. April was mostly dry and mild with showers at the end of the month increasing the Botrytis infection to high enough levels to concentrate the sugar and flavours to allow harvest to begin. Harvest started early May and progressed for next 5 weeks into mid June. Harvesting every block at its ideal Botrytis and sugar concentration.
