To create a red wine "Noon Eclipse" is used three kinds of grapes - Grenache, Syrah and Graciano grown in McLaren Vale. After hand-picking the berries carefully sorted and are fermented in steel tanks under strictly controlled temperature. Exposure of wine takes place in small American oak barrels for 18 months (10-20% of the barrels - new) and large French barrels.
Small family winery Noon was founded in 1976 by David Nun, a French teacher in the McLaren Vale. Since 1996, children Nun - Drew and Ray - led family business. Noon wines are mainly from Grenache grapes from old vines planted in 1934, 1943 and 1999. To create a blend of its flagship red wine "Eclipse" (before it was called "Burgundy") takes on David Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from his fellow viticulturists from Langhorne Creek. Nun Winery produces only red wines in small lots, as they are created manually, with virtually no interference, and the use of additives, using conventional open tanks and lattice presses.
