Mount Horrocks Watervale Semillon 2017 (1x 75cl)

Mount Horrocks Wines is run by proprietor/winemaker Stephanie Toole. Stephanie restricts production to approximately 3,500 cases per annum in order to achieve her aims of quality and single vineyard expression. Stephanie describes her wines as 'essentially hand made food wines with an emphasis on structure as well as generous fruit flavours'. All grapes are 100% estate grown from three separate vineyard sites totalling nearly 10 hectares which, in 2014, were 'A grade certified' by Australian Certified Organic (ACO). Her persistence with classic, no-compromise winemaking and a fully integrated organic approach to growing and making sets Mount Horrocks wines apart from the mainstream.

The Mount Horrocks Semillon is from a low yielding, single vineyard of unirrigated vines in Watervale. It has been a Certified Australian Organic (ACO) wine from 2014. Harvest is always done by hand.

Only the free run juice was used. The wine was 100% barrel fermented with lees stirring every two weeks for three months. It remained in French oak barriques for a total of nine months. 40% of the oak was new and the remainder one and two years old. It was bottled without fining.

The 2016 is light white gold in colour.The aromas are of garden herbs and apple over lightly toasty, spiced oak. Bright and tight, crisp and textured, this has layers of fruit and gentle oak. Citrus peel and green apple, baked pear and hazelnut praline even, with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Super-stylish, flavoursome yet not heavy. This wine will cellar easily to 10 or more years.

Perfect with roast or grilled poultry.

This wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
