Norfolk Rise is situated in Mount Benson, the vines were only planted in 2000, and the first vintage off the estate bottled in 2002. The free draining limestone soil profiles and cool maritime breezes produce wines of exceptional quality and complexity, embodying the unique and magnificent terroir of the surrounding landscape.
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.
A beautiful, lifted, fruit driven wine giving aromas of nectarine, florals, pear, apple, cinnamon and spice with a fabulous bright minerality balanced by a soft finish with great length.
