Kreglinger is a distinguished trading company founded 1797, it significantly holds registration Number 1 in the city of Antwerp. The group extended its operations to Australia, establishing the Norfolk Rise Vineyard and winery at Mount Benson on the Limestone Coast. The highest standards of viticulture are adhered to, the splendid range of wines bear the hallmarks of exacting standards in viticulture and fastidious winemaking. Engagingly Pinot Grigio, textural and fine with winsome pinenut and orange blossom characters, a match to dressed quail or grilled fresh whitings.
Situated at the heart of Mount Benson, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on 180 hectares of undulating coastal hills. Parcels of Pinot Grigio are selectively harvested to a timetable determined by physiological ripeness, allowing full expression of varietal fruit character. Grapes are handled in a manner to preserve integrity and avoid any juice oxidation or browning. Small portions of chilled grapes are held on skins for optimal extractions of flavour. Juices are clarified and a long, cool fermentation is initiated by aromatic yeast strains. To maximise the retention of fresh fruit flavours and aromas, Norfolk Rise is bottled immediately after vinification and assemblage.
