Mclaren Vale

Noon Winery

Eclipse Grenache Blend 1999

Beautiful sweet nose. Color is nice for something 20 years old. Not typical for an Australian wine. The fruit bursts from the glass and onto the palate but without that overdone character so typical from Australia. Very rich and silky texture. Drink it now and don’t wait any longer. — 17 hours ago

Like Raindrops..... Mclaren Vale Grenache

Molly’s Australian tasting oct 2019 . Reminded me of some really good regular wines we’ve had, almost like a Pinot but it’s a Grenache blend — 10 days ago

#beautifulbeast #shiraz #aussierevolution #aussieshiraz it needs to be decanted and is very different compared to a Barossa Valley or a Coonawarra. It is speaking it’s own language. It doesn’t come cheap but you definitely get your money’s worth. — a month ago

Two Hands

Angels' Share McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018

This wine is inky dark in the glass and offers up a brawny nose of blackberry, plum and a smidge of tar. Cola and tea notes also appear. The palate shows dark fruit layered with savory spices and mint. The tannic structure is firm, but not overbearing, and the sip finishes dark and medium long.

G.A.M. McLaren Vale Shiraz 2005

This has aged with grace. Resolved tannins, bramble blue fruit, blackberries, and red plums, followed by a sweet brioche note. The blue fruit shines on the palate and it has a pleasant roundness without being flabby. Pleasurable now, but on the downside of its drinking window. One bottle left for a cool night to come. — 10 days ago

Little Ox McLaren Vale Shiraz

Super ripe black cherries on the nose and a hint of oak, medium body with so much ripe fruit, but good acid cuts in md gets your tongue tingling, with tannins that follow and linger. Lush but complex, not just an Aussie fruit bomb. — 16 hours ago

Thomas Goss

McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016

Medium bodied. Initially a bit of strong alcohol, but it eventually evens out. A small bit of sweetness and fruit begins to peek through. Not highly complex, but good drinkability, with nice weight to it. — 15 days ago
