Noon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
Lamb and Cabernet is a proven and classic match. Roast leg or rack of lamb with lots of rosemary and garlic and roasted vegetables is an ideal accompaniment to our Noon Reserve Cabernet, especially the older vintages. In fact just about anything roasted is lovely. The thought of a small roast chicken wrapped in pancetta or stuffed under the skin with herbs brings us to the kitchen in search of a roasting pan.

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.
A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades.

In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
