Noon Reserve Shiraz 2012


SKU 12185


Deep red in colour and very inviting to smell, with aromas of fresh licorice, blueberry conserve and spices (clove, black pepper, nutmeg). Full bodied but with excellent balance and a dry, firm finish. Appears to have the structure and balance to benefit from long term cellaring if you wish. Also good to drink now with robust food (char grilled meat would be perfect). A slightly drier, more elegant wine than the 2013. Best drinking now-2022+

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Reserve Shiraz reveals intense notes of crushed blackberries and black cherries with underlying wild blueberry, aniseed, chocolate box and Szechuan pepper hints. With a wonderful vibrancy to the fruit in the full-bodied and concentrated mouth, it displays a harmonious interplay of firm, rounded tannins and well-balanced acidity before finishing long. Drink it now to 2024+.

Wine SpectatorDark, deep and spicy, this harmonious wine drips with flavors of cherry, black currant and tar on a highly polished structure, playing against a hint of mint as the finish persists. Drink now through 2020. 400 cases made.
