Denbies Wine Estate Noble Harvest half bottle 2016

£27.49

11.00% ABV
Sumptuous, yet fresh, citrus and apricot flavours with botrytised honey

The vineyards of Denbies Estate are situated on the North Downs, in the town of Dorking, with its famous chalky soil, in a protected valley of south-facing slopes (AONB). A total of 265 acres out of the 700-acre estate have been planted to vine, commencing in 1986.
The Noble Harvest is made 100% from hand-picked Ortega, this Vineyard Select wine is golden in colour with dried apricot characters on the nose. A luscious and complex dessert wine it finishes crisp on the palate and can be enjoyed with a wide array of foods. After several days of perfect Botrytis harbouring conditions in The Brokes and Park blocks of Denbies Vineyard, the decision was made to pick the botrytised Ortega in early October. After a gentle de-stem and crush, the fruit macerated for 12 hours before being carefully transferred to the press. A gentle press cycle of 12 hours followed. The juice was then slowly fermented partly in oak and partly in stainless steel. Judicious use of new French oak also helped to further enrich the wine.
