Description

Mount Horrocks Wines is owned by winemaker Stephanie Toole, who restricts production to approximately 4,500 cases per annum in order to achieve her aims of quality and single vineyard expression. The Clare Valley winery was established in 1982 and purchased by Stephanie in 1993, who has made significant improvements to the wines, vineyards and winery.
The grapes were hand-picked from the Mount Horrocks single vineyard in Auburn, Clare Valley. `Cordon Cut` refers to a unique, risky process that involves cutting the canes when the grapes are ripe, allowing the remaining fruit to concentrate and raisin naturally on the vine. This results in intense flavour and richness.
Pale yellow gold. Orange marmalade and fresh vanilla notes lift a most appealing aroma. These carry through to the palate, augmented with lemon curd and mineral-flint tones, a clear, bright sherbet-like tang and incredible length of flavour. It’s wonderfully concentrated and sweet but in no way cloying, managing to combine richness with vitality and texture with zing. This vintage is a little more intense, mouth-filling and flavoursome – partially due to the influence of botrytis cinerea mould, a first for Cordon Cut.
