|Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:|
My very favourite sweet wine for finishing any special occasion dinner! Deep gold in the glass, there's honey and rich stone fruit aromas. Rich and viscous on the palate with peach that goes on and on, to a slightly smoky finish. Can be served with fruit desserts or a soft, mild cheese selection. But such a treat on its own!
|L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
Lusciously sweet deep gold wine with pronounced intensity nose of peach, candied fruit, caramelized raisins, honey, apricot jam and a floral note. Tastes of toffee and caramelized raisins with peach preserves. Truly delicious with strong cheese like Roquefort or with a dessert of creme brulee or Christmas cake. One of my absolute favourites !
|Jisun Hahn CAPS Certified Somm rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
A golden nectar with notes of honeyed almonds, candied peach and fresh lemon. The bright lemon balances the sweetness resulting in an elegant dessert wine. Pair with a baked apple tart glazed with caramel and candied walnuts. A delicious treat!
|Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Ridiculously delicious. A sweet wine for those that don't even love sweet wine. It's like apricot tart tatin, baked apples with walnuts and syrup, and a waft of fresh peach cobbler. Not cloying in the mouth, with a clean citrus finish. Perfect with pink apple tarts and clotted cream. @wrightwineblog
|First produced in 1982, Noble One is a lush, weighty botrytis-affected dessert wine made from the thin-skinned Semillon wine grape. Golden in the glass with a lovely nose of orange blossom, apricot compote, honey wax and white flowers and concentrated sweetness at 231 grams residual sugar per litre with honeyed fruit, citrus, vanilla and soft spice flavours on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews|
