d'Arenberg The Noble Mud Pie 2017 | Halves


d'Arenberg's The Noble Mud Pie is a dessert style wine made from Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Pinot Gris grapes. Botrytis Cinerea, affectionately known as Noble Rot, weakens grape skins causing water to evaporate which results in sweet, concentrated flavours. These shrivelled berries are basket pressed before a long fermentation, resulting in a luscious wine with intense richness and viscosity.

This wine is generous and rich yet has great freshness and acidity from the cooler 2017 vintage. Honey suckle, frangipani and lemon balm leap from the glass with concentrated citrus and pineapple strewn across the palate. The finish is long and intense with soft phenolics and fantastic length of flavour.
