Winemaker's Notes

The distinctive black currant aroma and flavour of Cabernet Sauvignon is like a touchstone in the winery and in the tasting glass. We have missed having it around and am looking forward to serving it with some slow cooked lamb meals over the cooler months. The 2012 Reserve Cabernet tastes complex and exciting with clear varietal definition.

Critical Acclaim

"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+."

Learn About Noon

Drew Noon took over operating the family owned Noon winery after spending time as Winemaker at Cassegrain and other ventures in Victoria.

The Eclipse and Reserve shiraz can command high levels of capital increase and are definitely wines to hold on to (if you can get them).
