A top label and a boutique legend. The Noon Cabernet uses the cooler climate of Langhorne Creek for its longer ripening and ability to achieve a huge depth of lush, defined fruit. Deliciousness and nuance makes it drinkable now, while fine acid and ripe tannins support a serious life in cellar. As a darling of the world market, particularly in America, the Noon Cabernet has recieved from Parker's Wine Advocate many and frequent 95+ point scroes. It sells out, so grab it while it now!

Overview

Cabernet Sauvignon

Its Origins

The Noon family’s winemaking on their McLaren Vale property had been local and slightly under the radar. But when the property went up for sale, son Drew Noon MW returned from winemaking work at Tyrrells and Cassegrain, and then as a jobbing winemaker in Victoria, to take over the reigns. Combining the simplicity and artisan directness of his father’s basket-press approach with his newfound skills in crafting wine to the highest market standards, Drew’s work ethic heavily overcompensated for what they lacked in backing. With continuing access to old vines in Langhorne Creek’s highly favourable climate, Noon wines soon won the attention of Robert Parker and international acclaim was to follow. While remaining full-bodied, hedonistic reds of the old school tradition, Noon wines’ combination of extreme approachability with distinctive authenticity and character has ensured them an enduring position at the premium level of Australian winemaking.

93/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski (2016 vintage)

"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Reserve Cabernet has a nose of creme de cassis, dark chocolate and crushed cloves with hints of cedar, black pepper and cumin. Very big, very full and very rich in the mouth to the point of being just a bit hot, it has a medium to firm level of chewy tannins and well-placed acidity. It finishes long and a touch bitter. Drink it now to 2022+."
