2007 Noble Late Harvest

2007
The Grand Vintage (375ml bottle)- NOW SELLING

 

Season
9.5/10
A perfect ripening season made for ideal conditions to promote the development of Noble rot in the vineyard. Several rows were left to hang and Nick Nobilo’s proprietary Vinecover system was used intermittently to protect the fruit. Hand harvesting commenced in mid June.

 

Description
The 2007 Vinoptima Noble is deep yellow-gold in colour and exhibits an alluring sweet botrytis aroma. A fragrant array of exotic and dried fruits including figs, dried apricots and andromeda dates are set against a background of mandarin.

The palate is intense and luscious with butterscotch toffee, Manuka honey and zesty lemon/lime and mandarin flavours. The finish is tart with a slight bitter-sweet tang. The wine has a distinct oily texture that holds the layers of flavours and coats the tongue giving an incredibly long finish.

A harmonious and hedonistic wine that is deliciously sweet and smooth.
