- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The Norfolk Rise Shiraz is one of the country's dead set bargain wines. It is one of those wines that you need a dozen or two of in the house at all times. It's pitch perfect medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz made by the experienced hands of Dan Berrigan. The fruit concentration, elegance and complexity at this price-point is virtually unheard of. The 2015 was a remarkable release, and while the 2016 may be a little lighter in style, the excellent quality-to-price ratio is there again. Unfeasibly good buying here for any Shiraz fan.
What it Tastes Like
They've done it again. Black and blue fruit, a thick dusting of ground white pepper, a little hint of greenery - it's right in the slot. More streamlined than the 2015, the tannins fine and supple, while pepper continuing into the palate. It's brightly fruited, mid weight and highly glugable. Ripping mid-week drinking.

About the Producer
Norfolk Rise is located in the emerging wine region of Mount Benson on South Australia’s Limestone Coast. Their wines are made from fruit grown in these rich ancient soils and their wines punch well above their weight for the price.
Long held up to the rest of the world as Australia’s flagship red variety, the mighty Australian Shiraz has undergone something of a renaissance over the past two decades. While our robust styles of Shiraz from powerhouse South Australian regions such as the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale may have put Australian wine on the map, Shiraz from our cooler regions are giving the variety a new look. Wines from Canberra, all parts of Victoria, the Adelaide Hills, and the Great Southern, are all delivering wines of finesse and spice set to a lighter framework. The tapestry of Australian Shiraz is richly diverse, and will only continue to develop and mature into the future.
