General Characteristics Sweet / Medium bodied.
Winemaking: When the botrytised Semillon grapes are being harvested for Noble One, a parcel of fruit at approx 20-22 baume is selected to produce the Black Noble intense and ripe botrytis flavours. Very little fermentation occurs before fortification with a neutral grape spirit is added to inhibit any further fermentation. Black Noble is then clarified, a touch of brandy spirit added for further complexity before being transferred into used Noble One barriques.
Cellaring: The wine has been aged in barrel and is designed for current consumption but will keep in the bottle for several years.
So far Black Noble has won over 60 awards and medals in various wine competitions.
