Miles Mossop Wines was established in 2004 with the vision to create wines unique in character, expressing the true nature of South Africa and the sites from which the grapes are sourced. It is a family business with Miles Mossop as winemaker and viticulturist. The wines are named after Miles and Samantha Mossop's three children.

This Noble Late Harvest is made from 100% Chenin blanc.

Tasting notes:
'Noble Late Harvest. From Chenin Blanc, 30% of the grapes were botrytis infected. Some subtle mushroom-like character to go with citrus and stone fruit on the nose. The palate is super-concentrated with bright acidity and a pithy finish. Has a delicious sweet ‘n sour character. Layers of flavour, balanced and long.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100

Winemakers notes:
We picked 3 times between the 8th March and 20th April. Picking only bunches which are perfectly infected with Noble Rot and those with raisins. The grapes were picked at sugars of between 40.5- and 50-degrees brix and an acidity of 6.5 and 11.5 g/l. The grapes were delivered to the winery and put directly into cold storage overnight to drop the temperature of the grapes down to around 4 degrees Celsius. The grapes were crushed whole bunch into bins for a cold soak for 24 hours after which fermentation was initiated. Fermentation on the skins took place for 4 days before the grapes were pressed and the fermenting must taken to 400L old French oak barrels for fermentation to complete, which took 3 months. The fermentation stopped naturally at a perfect balance of sweetness, acidity and alcohol.
