2013 Nobility sauternes-style dessert wine

Winemaker's Notes: The 2013 Nobility, made in the Sauternes style, a result of the rare botrytis cinema "noble rot", is our sixth vintage.  The berries are selected berry by berry and then barrel fermented and aged in New French oak.  Fermentation lasted almost 5 weeks, after which point the wine was aged 26 months before bottling.  The wine is 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc, and the grapes come from Gamble Ranch (Sauvignon Blanc) and Knights Valley (Semillon).  There were 132 cases produced.

Tasting Notes: Very well balanced.  The 2013 Nobility is delicately layered with aromas and flavors of honey, apricot, vanilla, pear, toasty oak, fig, tobacco, and a balanced acidity that carries through to a rich, honeyed finish.

Our Nobility comes in 375ml, 1.5L, and 3L bottle sizes.

Retail $75 per bottle.
