Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 Noble One is a bright, light gold color. An array of aromas emerge from the glass, including peach, cumquat, nectarine and floral honey complemented with hints of well integrated sweet vanillin oak. Rich and luscious with layers of flavour including apricot, peach, citrus and subtle French oak. The wine is vibrant and finishes with a nice tang of acidity. Delectably intense and succulent.

Critical Acclaim

"This wine's deep brassy color suggests honey, and the aromas of honey, dried apricots, vanilla and baking spices reinforce that suggestion of sweetness. On the palate, it delivers honeyed richness and a complex array of flavors balanced by decent acidity. It remains the standard bearer for Australian botrytis wines.
Editors' Choice"
93 Points

"Sweet and silky, this is complex with apricot, dried pear, wet hay and cream flavors that persist into the long, deftly balanced finish. Not at all sugary. Ends with mouthwatering lemon notes."
92 Points

"Deep yellow-gold. Lively aromas of tangerine and pear skin, with deeper apricot and mango notes gaining strength with air. Rich but lithe, with sweet pit fruit nectar and candied orange flavors and a suave floral honey quality. Silky, focused and spicy, with strong finishing lift and clarity. This would be great with washed rind or blue cheeses."
