Region: Mount Benson SA
Style: Soft, Juicy
The Norfolk Rise Vineyard is located in the emerging wine region of Mount Benson on South Australia’s Limestone Coast where the climate is cool due to consistent, year round sea breezes that serve to moderate temperatures. Combine these cool, maritime micro climatic conditions with a free draining terra rossa soil profile and you have an excellent environment for premium grape production. Great booze and exceptional value for money.
Picked off our 100% estate vineyards in March the fruit was crushed and destemmed into stainless steel fermenters. With a quick, cool ferment using Bordeaux yeasts and moderate extraction we have achieved this medium bodied, fruit driven style showing the best of our Mount Benson terroir.
