Much more than a simple fruit bomb, this wine is intriguingly subtle at first, with complex, savory aromas (soy sauce, nutmeg and green tea) emerging with time in the glass. The palate is medium to full bodied and has a gentle mouth feel with persistent firm tannin to finish. It comes across as a strong silent type which will have a lot to say if you take the time to get to know it. This is a wine which should evolve nicely in the cellar over the next 10 years and more.Choose strongly flavored dishes such as lamb shanks or Osso Bucco to accompany young vintages. As the Noon Reserve Shiraz matures, tannins mellow and complexity builds and it becomes a good partner for a simple but high quality beef T-Bone or aged rump steak.
