Will continue to cellar well for up to 10 years or enjoy now young and fresh. Situated in the heart of the cool climate Mount Benson region, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on 130 hectares of undulating coastal hills. Within 5 kilometres of the ocean at 37 degrees south of the equator, our Pinot Noir, clone MV6, is planted on near perfect “Terra Rossa” soils, providing an ideal level of nutrient and water retention for this fickle variety. The grapes were harvested from our best Limestone Coast vineyards in March and were crushed and fermented over 9 days. The wine was pressed gently to neutral oak where it matured for 7 months before bottling.
Who made it?
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.
