De Bortoli Wines is celebrating the 40th year of its famous and iconic Noble One Botrytis Semillon, with an exclusive limited edition box signed by Darren De Bortoli, the pioneer of the wine.
The Anniversary Limited Edition captures four decades of Noble One with a bottle from each decade, after De Bortoli began producing the wine in 1982.
In a statement, De Bortoli Wines said: “The Noble One 40th Anniversary Limited Edition includes the 1984, 1993, 2004 and 2018 vintages, each with their own distinct character. The winemaking of Noble One is very dependent on Mother Nature, the right humidity at the right time is needed for the botrytis to work its magic.
“The process of making Noble One has only been tweaked ever so slightly over the years. In the 1990s, after trying varying oaks, Darren settled on fully imported Seguin Moreau French oak barriques stored in temperature controlled conditions, to reduce possible oxidation during the summer months. These changes resulted in a full bodied rich and luscious wine.
“In the 2000s, De Bortoli began keeping a portion unoaked to blend with a portion matured in barrel to add some fruitfulness and freshness to the blend, whilst still maintaining the iconic Noble One style.”
Only 40 units of Noble One 40th Anniversary Limited Edition’s were curated in the world and each carries a $2000 RRP.
