Producer tasting notes: "From a varm, early vintage, this looks to be a very good Eclipse. Produced from 86% Grenache, 696 Shiraz and 8% Graciano, all estate grown. Medium deep colour. Lovely nose, with ripe berry fruit along with a touch of lavender, thyme and spice. Very attractive. A big ripe sweet fruited palate, evidently high in alcohol but carrying it easily, retaining nice balance from some savoury tannins and excellent length. Poised, despite its size. Good length. Full bodied, impressive Grenache." - Noon Winery

Drinking Window: 2017 - 2030

Blend: 86% Grenache (Grenache), 6% Shiraz & 8% Graciano

Winemaking

Noon Eclipse is usually quite high in alcohol because it is produced from Grenache grapes from low yielding vines. We do not set out with the aim of making a wine of high (or Iow) alcohol. Our desire rather is to harvest fully ripe fruit which best express the flavour of the grapes and the site. 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 manual basket presses which are gentle and do not extact too much bitterness or astringency. Very little is added or taken away by modern winemaking technology. We prefer to take a minimalist approach, believing that this will deliver a wine which genuinely reflects the grapes and the site. Noon Eclipse is grown, made and bottled on fre estate.
Ageing
Noon Eclipse is matured in seasoned 300 litre French and American oak barrels and large (Foudre and demi- muid sized) oak casks for 18 months.
