Fresh lifted aromatics and classic botrytis characters like orange marmalade, citrus and honey, the complexity, richness and elegance of this wine make it a delicious partner to desserts as well as cheese platters.
Recommended food pairings: The complexity, richness and elegance of this wine make it a delicious partner to desserts such as vanilla bean and salted caramel semifreddo or a baked lemon cheesecake. It is also a perfect match with cheese platters – including strong flavoured blues and pungent washed rind styles, or with a rich paté at the start of a great meal.
Growing Conditions: This wine can be challenging to grow and to make. The right climatic conditions and the picking time are pivotal to the success of the wine. Towards the end of vintage each year, a portion of the Riesling fruit is left to hang on the vines for late harvesting. In the warm, moist conditions brought about by morning mists and gentle autumn rains, the grapes attract the mould Botrytis Cinerea or ‘Noble Rot’. This mould grows on the grape skins resulting in thinning of the skins which leads to loss of fluid from the berries, leaving them shrunken, raisined and highly concentrated in sugar and flavour. From these shrivelled grapes we produce our Noble Riesling.
Winemaker: Cate Looney

“Hand-picked, botrytis-affected. Deep gold. A style that has won and continues to win major awards, placing it among Australia’s best dessert white wines. Brilliant deep gold. Resonates throughout with golden syrup, apricot, citrus blossom and orange peel. Thick and sticky, clings to the sides of the mouth and won’t let go. Toffee, nutty, caramel go long on the finish. Luscious and clean.”
