(Due end Oct- book now) Rare and gorgeous, the Noon Reserve Shiraz balances hedonism and artisan credibility. The fruit of 40+ year vines from deep alluvial soils is hand-pressed in traditional wooden baskets by second generation Drew Noon - guru of boutique winemaking and Master of Wine. Langhorne Creek's slow ripening allows a softer, fuller style with immense body but also definition and finesse. Parker gave 96+ to every vintage since 1997, with many receiving a staggering 99. This sells in the US for mega dollars. Drink now or cellar, but do not miss out!

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.

96/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski (2016 vintage)

"The 2016 Shiraz Reserve is a star, marrying hints of mint with dark chocolate, blackberries and black olives. Full-bodied and plush, it features a lovely velvety texture that persists right to the end of the long finish. Big, powerful and intense, it retains a sense of softness and elegance, driven by the fineness of the tannins and notions of red raspberries that appear on the finish."
