NV De Bortoli Black Noble

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Combine the Australian classic De Bortoli Noble One with some time slowly aging in barrel and you get this incredibly moreish sweetie. A fascinating sweet wine with an extra couple of degrees of alcohol to make it the ultimate end to a fancy dinner.

"The Non Vintage Black Noble is made of fortified Botrytis Semillon in a solera system averaging 8 years of age. Amber brown, the wine has a splendid nose of figs, dates, toffee, and assorted candied fruits. Rich and full on the palate, the wine retains good acidity and a long finish. Drink it with strong cheeses or chocolate desserts. De Bortoli owns estate vineyards in Riverina, Hunter Valley, and Yarra Valley and produces several tiers of dry table wines in addition to their sweet and fortified dessert wines." - 91 Points, Dr Jay Miller for Robert Parkers Wine Advocate #173, October 2007

"It certainly bears a strong resemblance to the PX wines of the Jerez region of Spain. The bouquet carries treacle and toffee notes, with hints of Christmas cake, and the sweetness of the palate is balanced by lifted acidity." - Highly Recommended, WINEWISE, Vol 22 No 2, June 2006

"This is like gluggable pudding in a glass - I could drink the whole bottle if you'd let me! It smells and tastes of toffee, like it was practically made to go with sticky date cake and a post-dinner coffee. Delicious." - Donna Hay Magazine, June 2009

Expert Reviews

James Halliday says
A freakish wine; botrytis semillon kept aside and aged for many years in barrel; highly aromatic biscuit, treacle and mandarin flavours; long and very fine.
