Winemaker Notes

Medium deep color. Lovely nose, with ripe berry fruit along with a touch of lavender, thyme and spice. Very attractive. A big ripe sweet fruited palate, evidently high in alcohol but carrying it easily, retaining nice balance from some savory tannins and excellent length. Poised, despite its size. Good length. Full bodied, impressive Grenache. Drinking nicely now but will mature slowly through until 2021+.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling
Around 80% grenache with shiraz and graciano making up the numbers, all from their McLaren vale vineyard. This has a beautifully sweet cherry and chocolate nose, really attractive bright fragrant red plums too; super bright. The palate has a soft and caressing texture, the fleshy appeal is undeniable. There's a lick of chocolate amid raspberry and boysenberry fruits; tannnis are settled and even. Great balance.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Drew Noon grows this wine at his estate vineyards in the Southern Vales, all own-rooted, dry-farmed bush vines. It’s 88 percent grenache, from vines planted in 1934 and 1943; the balance is shiraz and graciano from younger vines. It’s not shy in alcohol, but it’s not overripe—a bold, zesty grenache with floral spice and tree-bark notes. The wine’s sweet fruit will complement grilled lamb sausages.

Noon, Australia
Image of winery
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 with Grenache and Mourvèdre, 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.
