Invivo co-founders Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron recently returned from Norton’s summer house in County Cork, Ireland, where they spent an afternoon tasting and blending samples for the Shiraz and the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, which will be released in September.

Invivo is looking to produce about 300,000 to 400,000 bottles of the Shiraz, which will retail for AUS$20 a bottle (£11.90, HK$119).

There are 18 wine regions in South Australia, including the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Limestone Coast and Riverland.

Lightbourne said: “The wine needs to stack up as well and we work quite hard on that – we know people will buy it because of his name, especially up in Ireland and lovers of the Graham Norton Show, but we want them to come back and buy it again because they like the quality.”
