#NWTW Week 20: Sweet Wine Using Noble Rot

week 20 - noble rot

We’ve decided to shelve an idea for a couple of weeks that will all become clear soon, so for NWTW Week 20 it’s time for the first sweet wine of the year.  It’s going to be sweet wine that’s produced from a specific method rather than from a specific place.

There are a few ways to make sweet wine, all involve techniques to make sure there is plenty of sugar in the final wine, giving it its sweetness.  The technique we’re going to be looing at this week is using Noble Rot.

During the week I’ll explain what that is and how it works, but in the mean time here are my picks this week:

Majestic Wine
The Ned Noble Sauvignon Blanc, 375ml

TTD Sauternes, 375ml

Couldn’t find one

Spirited Wines
Château Terfort Sainte-Croix-du-Mont, 2002, 375ml

You’ll probably notice that these are all in half bottle sizes.  That’s merely to reflect that it’s usually something you just have a swifty of with your pudding.  If you really like it then you can buy larger bottles (or just buy two!).

Happy hunting
