2003 Sine Qua Non "Mr. K The Noble Man" Chardonnay (375ml)

SKU #1025720 95-96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium gold. Knockout nose offers pure botrytis aromas of orange oil, apricot, clove, marzipan, chocolate and mocha. Extraordinarily thick and honeyed but with bracing acids leavening the flavors of marzipan, coconut, brown sugar and orange rind. Higher-toned than the gewurztraminer, with a spirity suggestion of Gran Marnier. Krankl was about to bottle this. I have rarely tasted such thoroughly botrytized Chardonnay. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2005)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2003 Mr. K. The Nobleman, a 100% Chardonnay made from botrytised fruit, possesses 278 grams of residual sugar per liter and 9.9 grams of acid per liter. There are a whopping 537 cases of half bottles. While deep golden-hued and honeyed, with brilliant unctuosity, thickness, and richness, it takes third place when ranked against its two sweet siblings. Readers should think of it as a Chardonnay Trockenbeerenauslese. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2006)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sine Qua Non’s 2003 Mr. K The Noble Man (100% botrytised Chardonnay) was one of the most remarkable sweet wines I have ever had. Despite its size and richness, it offered notable complexity and an engaging, unique personality. I loved it. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2007)

K&L Notes

Picked in three passes in late November, 2003, this is late-harvest botrytized Chardonnay at its best.
