Description

Norfolk Rise is from the emerging Mt Benson region of South Australia, situated 3 ½ half hours' drive down the coast from Adelaide. The viticultural team pick and ferment separately 48 parcels of grapes, showcasing the different soil profiles and clones, allowing them to produce high quality, complex Shiraz. 2018 has the quality to repeat if not outperform its award winning 2015/2016/2017 predecessors and will drink magnificently through 2025. Silky and very complex, this is South Australian Shiraz in the elegant maritime style as opposed to the bakingly hot Barossa Valley-floor style. Fully French oak matured for 12 months, the tannins are silky and the integrated oak adding hints of spice and chocolate, providing support for the concentrated fruit. Drinking well now through 2025.

Smells

Textbook fragrances of mulberry, plum, pepper, spice, dark cherry and violet.

Tastes

Silky and very complex, this is a refined style of South Australian Shiraz, very much in the maritime style as opposed to the bakingly hot valley-floor style. Fully French oak matured for 12 months, the tannins are very fine and grainy, providing ample support for the concentrated fruit. A very stylish Shiraz, this will be at its best now and improve through 2022.
