NOON, Shiraz Reserve , 75cl
NOON are a tiny family run winery with a huge cult following. Their reserve Shiraz shot to fame following 99 point scores from Robert Parker in the early 2000's and the quality has been consistently stunning ever since. All their wines are produced by hand and have all the ingredients to age beautifully for decades to come.
Produced from Shiraz grown on the 20 Rows block in Langhorne Creek by the Borrett family. Much more than a simple fruit bomb, this wine is intriguingly subtle at first, with complex, savoury aromas (soy sauce, nutmeg and green tea) emerging with time in the glass. The palate is medium to full bodied and has a gentle mouth feel with persistent firm tannin to finish. It comes across as a strong silent type which will have a lot to say if you take the time to get to know it.
