Winemaker Notes

The wine is amazingly deep in colour and still holding a purple hue which makes it look like a 3 year old wine. The nose is spicy, youthful and bright. It smells quite cool and fresh with the aroma dominated by blueberry and spice with a hint of tar. The palate is big, dense and youthful, possessing fresh, cool year acidity and great persistence. The flavour lasts for a full minute after swallowing.

Critical Acclaim

RP 99
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Flirting with perfection, the blue/purple-colored 2002 Shiraz Reserve is a 300-case cuvee produced from 40-year-old vines that was aged in a combination of small and large oak. Along with a texture reminiscent of motor oil, this full-bodied, remarkably intense Shiraz possesses great purity and richness as well as a broad palate. As concentrated as Shiraz can get, it is also impeccably well-balanced, elegant, and bursting with personality/soul. It is the kind of wine that is hard to duplicate anywhere else in the world. It is good to see certain winemakers refuse to put the brakes on when producing something of this ilk. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016+.

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).

Though Syrah originated in the Rhône Valley of France, Australia is home to the oldest Syrah (called Shiraz here) vines on the planet. Found in Australia’s Barossa Valley, where phylloxera has never threated viticulture, these ancient vines are between 140 to 175 years old!

Having brought fame and merit to the country’s wine scene since the early 1950s, namely via the debut of Penfolds Grange, today Syrah (Shiraz) claims rank as the most widely planted grape in Australia. In fact, the amount of land dedicated to Shiraz in Australia is now almost equivalent to what it is in France. Australian Shiraz has its own personality with flavors and aromas of intense blackberry, fruitcake, menthol, tobacco leaf and umami. Conveniently one can find great Australian Shiraz at a variety of price points but the very best will be dense, gloriously complex and capable of long aging.
