About

About The Wine

The Norfolk Rise Shiraz is one of the country's dead set bargain wines. I

t 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 past couple of releases have received rave reviews, in the 2017 vintage the excellent quality-to-price ratio is there again.

Unfeasibly good buying here for any Shiraz fan.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

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. A finer-boned Shiraz this year with plenty of spice, the tannins fine and supple, while pepper continuing into the palate. It's brightly fruited, mid weight and highly glugable. Ripping mid-week drinking. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

Situated in the heart of the cool climate Mount Benson region, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on 180 hectares of undulating coastal hills. Within 5 kilometres of the ocean at 37 degrees south of the equator, our Shiraz is planted on near perfect “Terra Rossa” soils, providing an ideal level of nutrient and water retention.

Grapes were selected from our best Mount Benson Estate Shiraz vineyards. The fruit was crushed, and then fermented in stainless steel fermenters at 18-25°C allowing gentle extraction of fruit flavours and soft, supple tannins. The wine was matured in mixed old and new French oak barriques prior to bottling, to allow integration of the great complexity of flavours.
