TAWNY & VP

High Noon rose

This is a dry, full bodied rosé. It is bottled early to retain freshness and we encourage you to serve this wine cool but not tongue-numbingly cold (which dulls the flavour) 10 – 13°C is ideal.  This wine is produced as naturally as possible and so it may develop some crystals in the bottle with refrigeration.

We generally recommend consuming the High Noon Rosé whilst young, within a year or two of the vintage, when it is full of fresh fruit aromas and flavours.

THE ROSE STORY...

NOON ECLIPSE

The vines which produce this wine surround our house and the furthest are 500m from it, so they are very familiar in all their seasonal guises. They are like old friends. I have pruned and tended them since I was a child and so the appearance of the vines themselves, the leaves and the bunches as they develop, is very familiar. I feel like I share a life experience with them and so they are close to my heart.

The wine we produce from them reflects this vineyard and our region.

Noon Eclipse is produced predominately from Grenache (80%+), with smaller components of Shiraz and Graciano.

THE ECLIPSE STORY...

RESERVE SHIRAZ

Grapes for the Reserve Shiraz have been sourced from the same vineyard (the 1.6 hectare ‘20 Rows’ block in Langhorne Creek owned by the Borrett family) since the first Reserve Shiraz in 1997. Earlier bottlings of this wine; 1993, 1992, 1991, 1990, 1989 and 1987 (when my father David was the winemaker) were labelled simply as Noon’s Traditional Red.

The Noon Reserve Shiraz is a full bodied, generously flavoured wine. If you usually prefer white wines or more elegant, light-medium bodied reds then this may not be the wine for you. It may be drunk young but will certainly reward cellaring.

THE SHIRAZ STORY...

RESERVE CABERNET

Grapes for the Noon Reserve Cabernet have been sourced from the Borrett family vineyards in Langhorne Creek  since the first Reserve Cabernet in 1996. Earlier bottlings of this wine; 1993, 1987 and 1986 (when my father David was the winemaker) were labelled simply as Noon’s Cabernet.

We love making and drinking Cabernet, the international benchmark for red wines. The Fruit Trees and Main Road blocks are on deep alluvial soil, with enough clay to retain good moisture and in a site cool enough to ensure slow ripening and high flavour development in the grapes. Noon Reserve Cabernet is a riper style than many, displaying blackberry fruit with full body and should always be complex and well structured for cellaring.

THE CABERNET STORY...

TAWNY & V.P.

Historically in Australia, these would have been described as Port wines but out of respect for the long standing use of this term in the wider world to describe the fortified wines of the Douro Valley in Portugal, we have stopped labelling them with the word Port.

 The V.P. is a single vintage wine, bottled after 18 months maturation in barrel and suited to further bottle ageing. The Tawny is a blend of older vintages which have been matured in barrel in partial contact with the air for many years (the average age of the blend is 15 years) and it is ready to consume on release.
