Personalised Mount Horrocks Semillon 2019 12.5% 750ml

Personalised Mount Horrocks Semillon 2019 12.5% 750ml

It is a Semillon that is all layered richness and texture, with some toasty notes awaiting the little butter destined to appear in a couple of years. Acidity provides cleansing balance and length.

Expert Review:
James Halliday- 94 points, A warmer vintage to be sure, what this lacks in way of linearity and precision, it gains in terms of amplitude and aromatic complexity: lemon oil and hedgerow segue to ripe quince, all offset by an intoxicating skein of fennel. Almost pastis-like. Nestled seams of oak service the textural opus. Delicious and light years from the tensile Hunter expression. Best not drunk too cold. (Ned Goodwin)

Mount Horrocks Wines restricts production to approximately 3,500 cases per annum to achieve the highest quality single vineyard wines. All three estate-owned Clare Valley vineyards, totalling ten hectares, are ‘A certified’ by Australian Certified Organic (ACO). Stephanie carefully crafts “essentially hand-made food wines with emphasis on structure as well as generous fruit flavours”. Only estate grown grapes are used and these are hand-picked and gently handled under conditions that ensure the varietal and site-specific flavours in the resultant wine, as well as its organic status, are retained. As no finings have been found necessary the wines are all suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Only the finest French oak barriques are used for those wines spending time in barrel.
