/ Medium bodied Vintage Conditions Persistent rain throughout the summer months resulted in high humidity leading to the earliest harvest in Noble One’s history,

with picking beginning on St Patrick’s day. Excellent botrytis was present in each vineyard with baumés rising rapidly. Harvest was all over in seven

days.Winemaking Vineyards that have regularly provided fruit for Noble One over the years were once again selected for the 2010 vintage. These vineyards

consistently produce ideal botrytised Semillon fruit with sweetness, lusciousness and intense botrytis flavours, which are synonymous with this wine. Each

vineyard is harvested separately then fermented and matured individually. Each vineyard has characteristics that enhance the complexity seen in this wine when

blended together. Matured in 29% new French oak barriques, 64% one and two year old barriques with 7% left unoaked to add some freshness to the final blend. Wine
