[SOLD-OUT] Noon Winery Eclipse Grenache Shiraz 2014

85% Grenache, 8% Shiraz and 7% Graciano! 96 Points! 96 Points!

"Since 2012, Eclipse has been produced exclusively from estate-grown McLaren Vale fruit. The 2014 Eclipse is a blend of 85% Grenache, 8% Shiraz and 7% Graciano, aged almost entirely in used oak. Aromas of spiced strawberries and raspberries are inviting and complex, hinting at white pepper, cardamom and allspice. It's full-bodied yet seems almost weightless, buoyed by high-toned fruit and bright acids, while fine-grained, silky-textured tannins give shape and focus to the palate and add a savory edge on the long finish.", March 2018

From a small crop and a vintage of more modest alcohol levels, resulting in a dense, slow maturing wine. Denser and firmer in style than the Reserve Shiraz and Cabernet from the same vintage. The 2014 Eclipse is produced from 85% Grenache, 8% Shiraz and 7% Graciano; all estate grown in McLaren Vale. Only medium deep red in colour, with a touch of brick in the hue. Smells very inviting, with wild strawberries and kirsch liqueur, along with hints of cardamom and white pepper. A full bodied wine, with a lovely soft mid-palate texture before quite firm tannins on the long finish. Has excellent balance and lots of potential. Should mature nicely and be a long lived Eclipse.
