Producer tasting notes: "Nice long, quality cork. The aroma is a little shy at first, opening up with breathing to reveal sweet berry fruit. The palate offers a lovely full body, with excellent balance and length. Despite the cooler, later season this wine tastes ripe and generous thanks to varm, dry weather which arrived in McLaren Vale just before picking in early April. Developing nicely." - Noon Winery

Drinking Window: 2013 - 2028

Noon Eclipse is predominantly Grenache (80%+) with smaller proportions of Shiraz and Graciano. The grapes come from the three Noon ‘homeâ€?vineyards in McLaren Vale. The grapes are hand-picked and fermented in small, open vats with hand-plunging to help extract colour and tannins.

"We produce generous, full-bodied wines from old vines growing is a warm climate. They are best consumed with equally flavoursome food"
- Drew Noon

Pressing is also by hand, using a basket press, followed by 18 monthsâ€?maturation in a combination of used 300-litre French and American oak barrels and larger oak casks. Eclipse may be high in alcohol as a result of Noon’s desire to harvest grapes when fully ripe and not to interfere with what the vineyard and the season has provided. Annual production is between 700 and 800 dozen.
