Noble Hill Blanc de Blancs
Varietals: 100% Chardonnay
Tasting Notes: This delicate sparkling wine shows a lovely array of aromas and flavors. Notes of melon, pineapple, and hibiscus flower are accented by a soft minerality. The racy acidity leads into elegant, finely formed bubbles and a crisp finish.
The Noble Hill winery sits on the northwest foothills of Simonsberg Mountain in the Simonsberg-Paarl region. Located 30 miles from Cape Town and just north of Stellenbosch, Simonsberg has been producing some of South Africa’s best wines for more than 300 years. In this environment Chenin Blanc develops gorgeously ripe and layered fruit flavors while still retaining its all-important acidity. By choosing to age this Chenin in its lees (a practice that is common in Champagne and France’s Loire Valley), Noble Hill creates a wine of exceptional complexity and structure.
