The Rudera Noble Late Harvest 2002 was made by the accomplished Teddy Hall when this was still his label. According to the 2004 edition of Platter’s, it features hand-selected botrytised Chenin Blanc berries and was 100% native yeast fermented before spending five months in new French barriques. Ten years on from vintage, it’s looking splendid: dried apricot very much to the fore but also hints of caramel, roasted almonds and that mushroom-like quality which is the hallmark of noble rot. Neither cloying (residual sugar relatively low at 137 g/l) nor aggressively acidic, it was very close to perfect. Score: 17/20.
