T Noble Late Harvest 2005
  • Platter 5 stars
  • Tasting Notes
    Chenin Blanc with Botrytis. We are blessed with botrytis most years and with multiple pickings (4/5 times) manage to maintain a perfect natural acid balance with the sweetness, creating a wine of exceptional finesse and balance. This golden wine with fresh, green tones is in a lighter style, clean yet unctuously sweet. Sumptuous peach, apricot flavours, overlaid with a tropical lushness of melon and pineapple. Ripe sweetness, yet tangy, with sweet and sour zip, wood spice on the finish.
