  • THE BRIEF
  • Norfolk Rise is the best kept secret of South Australia, with the vineyard in Mount Benson only planted in 2000, and the first vintage off the estate bottled in 2002.

    The free draining limestone soil profiles and cool maritime breezes produce wines of exceptional quality and complexity, embodying the unique and magnificent terroir of the surrounding landscape.

    This wine lives up to the hype of previous and awarded vintages, maintaining its elegant and complex cool climate style. A vibrant nose of raspberries, cracked pepper, and violets with more red fruits and blackberries on the palate. Spicy notes with super soft tannins and a delicate body make this Shiraz a beautifully balanced wine.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Grapes were selected from top Mount Benson Estate Shiraz vineyards. A long ripening season allows for a soft and silky tannin structure. The wine was matured in a mix of neutral and new French oak barriques prior to bottling, to allow integration of the great complexity of flavours.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Vibrant purple colour. A vibrant nose of raspberries and pepper with florals, liquorice and spice. Red fruits with black pepper on the palate. Soft tannins, dark fruit and chocolaty oak.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Estate-grown, hand-picked 15 Mar-11 Apr, some whole berry, 12 days on skins, matured in French puncheons (5% new) for 7 months. Very good crimson-purple hue; the spicy, peppery, black cherry flavours verify the bouquet, although there's a nip in the air with the defiantly cool climate style.

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    Lovely release. Not stellar, but high value and excellent to drink. Spices aplenty - crushed dry leaves, stems and peppers - with cherried fruit washing through. It's light- to medium-weight, well textured, lively and balanced. Nutty tannin is beautifully well integrated. It's all very attractive. Think savoury, think light, think lovely.'

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Deepish red/purple colour, with a bouquet of discreet pepper, spice, herbal and meaty charcuterie notes. The pepper suggests cool-climate. The palate is elegantly medium-bodied and very intense, the bright peppery fruit backed up by lively acidity. The tannins are in harmony.'
