The 2000 Noon Reserve Shiraz opens up to show aromas of dark berry fruits along with tar, asphalt, molasses and spice with a herbal edge. From a lesser vintage, this wine continues to show well each time we open it. It possesses a full bodied palate though there is less richness to it than say the 2001 (from a riper vintage). The acidity is a little more prominent than usual and there is a slightly leaner, drier style to this wine as you might expect from the vintage but it is still providing excellent drinking after a decade.
"The blockbuster 2000 Shiraz Reserve was aged in small barriques, foudres, and demi-muids. It boasts an inky black color as well as a fabulous bouquet of acacia flowers intermixed with blackberry and cassis liqueur, creosote, and camphor. Exceptionally long and layered, this opulent, voluptuous, pure Shiraz is a thrill to drink. The tannin, acidity, and alcohol (14.9%) are seamlessly integrated in this modern-day classic. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020. This is one of the great wines of South Australia! "
