This single vineyard Shiraz has a unique nose of ground black pepper, florals, perfume and summer blackberries. Smokey toffee, leather, cloves and tiramisu unfold in a silky smooth palate that persists long after the first sip. A cooler climate Syrah style wine, a tribute to the vineyard hero of the Mount Benson growing region and paying homage to the home of this wine style; the Rhone Valley.

Tasting Notes
Deep magenta purple with a vibrant nose of black pepper with florals and blackberries. Coffee, spice and layered black fruit. Fine supple tannins, seamlessly integrated rich chocolaty oak. The wine will cellar well for over 10 years.
Vineyard Notes
Situated in the heart of Mount Benson region, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on free draining “Terra Rossa” soils ideal for producing fruit of the highest quality. Within our Shiraz vines in early March berry sampling begins and it is then that we begin to see the unique flavours expressed by each plot. The most complex, vibrant and expressive fruit is then chosen for this tiny parcel of our favourite Shiraz.
Winemaker Notes
After the selection of the best 4 tonne of Shiraz grapes from the vineyard, the fruit is crushed, and then fermented as a small batch in stainless steel. Hand plunging, Rhone yeasts and a cool ferment allowed this wine to realise its full potential. The wine was matured in predominantly old oak with 30% new French barriques for +12 months prior to bottling, to allow for a beautiful balance between oak and fruit and allow the terroir of this unique site to be expressed.
