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 Pinot Grigio is planted on near perfect “Terra Rossa” soils, providing an ideal level of nutrient and water retention.
The grapes were selectively harvested at our Estate Vineyards from mid-February to mid-March to achieve optimum ripeness for the "Grigio" style. Processing was by full protective handling to avoid any juice oxidation or browning. Small portions of chilled grapes were held on skins in order to maximise the flavours in the resulting juice. The juice was clarified and a long, cool fermentation followed in tank using a selection of aromatic yeast strains. To maximise the retention of fresh fruit flavours and aromas, the resultant wine has been bottled under screw cap.
