Background

Noon Eclipse can be enjoyed as a young wine or cellared and consumed as a more complex and gentle older wine at around 10 years plus. We find most vintages show the first signs of maturity at about 4-5 years and then go through a period during which they show aspects of both youth and maturity before developing from about 10 years of age into a gentle, fully mature wine

Tasting Notes

Noon Eclipse is a generous, full bodied wine produced predominately from Grenache (80%+), with smaller components of Shiraz and Graciano, all from our McLaren Vale estate vineyards. Prior to the 2011 vintage, Eclipse was made from estate Grenache (approx 65%) with Langhorne Creek Shiraz (approx 35%).

The grapes are picked by hand and fermentation takes place in small open vats with manual pigeage, to help extract colour and tannins. Pressing is also done by hand, using small basket presses which are gentle and do not extract too much bitterness or astringency
