Winemaker Notes

This Noon Eclipse lifts our spirits! It is pure and generous in flavour and reflects the smaller Grenache crop in 2012 (down by 38 percent on 2011). There are layers to this wine with kirsch, orange zest and middle eastern spice aromas on the nose but you don't see all that it has to offer in the frist sip or two. The earlier, warmer growing season bestowed a greater depth and opulence of flavour in the 2012 wines. Once again the Eclipse has been produced entirely from our McLaren Vale estate vineyards and is predominantly Grenache. It should provide best drinking from 2014 until 2020 .

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 88% Grenache, 9% Shiraz and 3% Graciano, the 100% estate-grown, medium garnet-purple colored 2012 Eclipse is profoundly scented of red currant jelly, raspberry preserves and dried mulberries with an undercurrent of spice cake, pepper, cardamom and eucalyptus. Big, full and richly fruited on the palate, the generous red berry preserve and spicy flavors are well supported by medium to firm, velvety tannins and enlivening acid through the finish with great persistence. Drink it now to 2024+.

Noon, Australia
Noon Winery Image
The darling of the Australian small winery scene, Noon has a great following both in Australia and in particular the US. Drew Noon produces some unique wines packed with ripe red fruit and often high levels of alcohol. 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).

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
