Wines from a Low Yielding Vintage made with a Special Touch

The warm, dry 2018 vintage delivered Mount Horrocks a harvest to savour. The potential to produce outstanding wines was there from the outset. The dry conditions resulted in compact bunches of fruit in perfect condition with the reds showing particularly vibrant colour and full generous flavour. As is often the case, outstanding fruit quality of exceptional potential came at the price of very small production.

We hope you enjoy these latest releases. Please stay safe.

Stephanie Toole

As Stephanie‘s wines are all estate grown, this leaves no room to prop up volumes with purchased grapes. It is therefore important to her that the qualities of these limited releases as well as the reason for their limited volumes are appreciated.

So, here is why you should buy these latest release Mount Horrocks wines:

  • These are from single vineyard, certified organic fruit, made under certified winemaking conditions. This is not just another “we follow organic practices“ product; these are wines made according to strict, independently certified practices.
  • There is beauty in tradition. These are classically made wines with a modern touch – the latest in what we understand about sustainability combined with the best practices from the past.
  • Owner / winemaker Stephanie Toole grew the fruit for these wines in her vineyard and made the wine; crushing the grapes, plunging the red ferments and ensuring that wine quality was never compromised, and it shows.

Try these wines and decide for yourself. Discover the subtlety, complexity and beauty of these handmade wines created in a way that respects tradition while having embraced the best modern ideas in grape growing and winemaking.
