De Bortoli Botrytis Semillon Noble One Semillon Wine 2008

Member Review by chriscage:

Tasted Sep 2016! This pours a gold color with honeyed amber hues....nice and clear and oily thick in appearance! Aromas of honeycomb, apricot kernel, peach jam, pineapple, and apple butter/toffee.....dessert in a glass! Flavors of honeyed pear/apricot/peach, Rogers golden syrup, touches of musty mandarin orange, soft vanilla bean. Mouthfeel that is velvety smooth and full bodied, the alcohol is pleasantly well hidden and a true delight! Cheers!!

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo. Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines. Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends. Below is a video of the De Bortoli family taken as part of the Australia's First Families of Wine joint marketing initiative which involves some of Australia's oldest and most respected wine families.

Rich and sweet offering a vibrant mouthful of deeply honeyed pear and pineapple flavors extending into the long pillowy finish. Drink now through 2020. --Harvey Steiman Wine Spectator.

Bright yellow-gold; the vast experience of De Bortoli with this style results in a wine with the rich opulent and sweet fruit balanced by the acidity missing from lesser wines; cumquat mandarin honey and vanilla are all part of the package. 375 ml. James Halliday.
