2009 Mulderbosch Noble Late Harvest

This aromatic variety took the world by storm in the early 1990′s. Its instantly recognizable aroma profile of cut grass and gooseberries helps consumers identify what’s in the glass. For our Noble Late Harvest, perfectly botrytised Sauvignon Blanc berries were handpicked and allowed skin contact overnight before being slowly pressed. The juice was allowed to settle for two days before being racked to French oak barrels. After a lengthy fermentation the wine was left to mature on gross lees for six months.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Striking amber appearance with verdant hues. Beautifully developed botrytis notes of dried pear, mango and fresh hay dominate the nose. Succulent flavours of preserved cling peaches and quince paste on the palate are supported by subtle oaky tones reminiscent of hot buttered toast. A fine acidity heightens fruit purity and underpins a long and flavourful finish.
