Noon wines, the story

Noon wines are a McLaren Vale cult wine, and if you don’t think so, just ask the people who are patiently waiting for their chance to join the winery’s mailing list. Membership to the Noon mailing list is so coveted that even just ‘making’ it onto the mailing lists ‘waiting list’ is worth writing home about.  The cellar door is only open for a few weekends a year and for those who aren’t on the mailing list, this is the only opportunity they’ll have to purchase Noon wines at cellar door prices.  And often, many wines are already sold out at that time. 

 

Drew Noon was a trained oenologist before becoming a winemaker and is one of the few masters of wine in Australia.  The Noons are guided by one goal: to produce the most uncompromising product possible.  Using Some biodynamic practice, Drew Noon first came into contact with biodynamic when he worked at Cassegrain in NSW. 

Drew and Raegan Noon of Noon Winery in McLaren Vale, South Australia make 2,000 to 3,000 cases of wine a year in one of the simplest wineries imaginable.  Between a rough floor and low rafters are two tiny basket presses, wooden vats of all shapes and sizes, and some three-quarter ton fermenters.

Owning just 10 acres of bush-vine Grenache planted in the 1930s and '40s going into their signature “Eclipse”,  the Noon’s depend for volume of fruit from the Borrett family of Langhorne Creek for their other wines.  The “20 Rows” block providing the grapes for the shiraz, and the “Fruit Trees” block for the Cabernet.  Even after the acclaim and success of the brand, Noon continues to price the wines modestly given what could be charged, and most pricing in the retail market reflects the formula of supply and demand. 

"With their incredible perfume and extraordinary purity and layers of fruit, these are attention-getting wines, but there is a restraint, balance, and complexity that is remarkable.  Noon's wines taste like the essence of their respective varietals, pushing concentration and extract to the limit; although I have never sensed that they were over-the-top.  These are wines of extraordinary depth and richness, with amazing upside potential in the bottle.  Life is too short not to be drinking the wines of Drew and Rae Noon."

- Robert Parker on Noon Winery, in Robert M. Parker’s “The World’s Greatest Wine Estates”.
