Noon Reserve Shiraz

Grapes for the Noon Reserve Shiraz have been sourced from the same vineyard (the 1.6 hectare ‘20 Rows’ block in Langhorne Creek owned by the Borrett family) since the first Reserve Shiraz in 1997. Earlier bottlings of this wine; 1993, 1992, 1991, 1990, 1989 and 1987 (when Drew’s father David was the winemaker) were labelled simply as Noon’s Traditional Red.

The Noon Reserve Shiraz is a full bodied, generously flavoured wine. If you usually prefer white wines or more elegant, light-medium bodied reds then this may not be the wine for you. It may be drunk young but will certainly reward cellaring.

Earlier back labels generally suggested a 10 year drinking window, however recent tastings of 1998 and 1999 Reserve Shiraz demonstrate many years of good drinking still ahead.

Noon Reserve Shiraz a truly great Aussie red.

Noon

Noon Winery is run and owned by Drew and Raegan Noon. The Noon’s are quiet and considered people making earth shattering wines! They make gloriously powered, ripe late-picked red wine styles. James Halliday once wrote that the Reserve Cabernet would be a good drink for a sumo wrestler!

South Australia

Langhorne Creek is a little known region with major importance, especially for the production of red wine. Fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon with its minty overtones is the most significant product of the region. Viticulture dates from the 1850s when Frank Potts established Bleasdale the region’s only winery to stay in continuous production. It was only in the 1990s that the major wine companies started setting up in the region. Its significance being the availability and certainty of irrigation water from the Murray-Darling system, providing the facility to grow grapes of very good quality at relatively low costs. It has a mild climate with little variation across the region. The main wine styles: Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz.

Shiraz

flourish in a range of climates. In the warm to hot climates you can expect extremely intense aromatic, rich, full bodied wines, with hugh fruit (almost sweet) and chocolately tasting. In the more moderate/cooler climates you’re more likely to find structured Shiraz wines with black cherry, pepper and spice characters rather than the chocolate and fruit styles found in warmer climates.
