Natalie's Score: 96/100

A lusciously layered Australian dessert wine made from the classic Semillon grape. Rich aromas and flavours of honeyed apricot and peach preserves. Lovely nose of orange blossom, honey wax and white flowers. Terrifically concentrated sweetness at 231 grams per litre of residual sugar. Spreads with gorgeous textural weight across the palate. Australian dessert wines are often referred to as "stickies" however, there's nothing cloying about this wine and the only aspect that stickie is the memory of its taste. It has a refreshing finish. Pair with lemon tart, soft cheeses and smoked nuts.

Semillon food pairings: mango or tropical cheesecake, blue cheese, fig tarte.

Perry rated this wine as 91/100
Noble One (2014) from De bortoli is a dessert in itself. This sweet, but balanced dessert wine from the Riverina, New South Wales is made from the Semillon grape. The wine grapes are botrytis affected giving incredibly layered and complex flavours of apricot and peach jam, floral honey and orange blossom. This stickie as Australian dessert wines are often referred to, is concentrated and rolls over the palate with a smooth and weighty sweetness. Drink now and for the next 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews
