2019 Noon Reserve shiraz. Fruit fruit Noon Reserve shiraz has been sourced from a 1.6 hectare block in Langhorne Creek since 1997. Owned by the Borrett family, this vineyard was planted in 1962 on the Langhorne Creek flood plain. Vintages made prior to 1997 were labelled Noon’s Traditional Red. These wines were made by Drew’s father, David.
Noon Reserve shiraz is matured for around 18 months in a combination of French and American oak, of which about 40% is new. Production is generally between 750 to 850 dozen bottles. Noon Reserve Shiraz is a full bodied, blockbuster wine. Alcohol volumes are high, usually north of 15% so expect a hangover.
The 2015 Noon Reserve shiraz is deep in colour. It smells like soy sauce, beef stock and molasses. Firm tannins and a full bodied, rounded mouth feel.
