After the whirlwind success and national sell-out of the 2015 vintage the arrival of this wine has been highly anticipated. It doesn’t disappoint, maintaining the elegant and complex cool climate style. A vibrant nose of cracked pepper and violets with luscious red fruits backed up by blackberries, chocolate and liquorice. Savoury notes with super soft tannins and a delicate body make this Shiraz a beautifully balanced wine.

Tasting Notes
Vibrant magenta red. A vibrant nose of pepper with florals, liquorice and spice. A palate of red fruits with black pepper, vanilla and chocolaty almond husk. Soft tannins, dark fruit and chocolaty oak. This gorgeous wine will cellar well for 10 years, but why wait when it’s this vibrant and juicy?
Vineyard Notes
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.
Winemaker Notes
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.
