2016 Mount Horrocks Semillon, Clare Valley
By Tony Love
In a league of its own, this is semillon on steroids (in a truly great way), barrel-fermented in 40 per cent new oak that shows in its faintly smoky/charry nose yet never dominating the citrus zest and lemon curd fruit. Once you dwell further, there’s more than just that – stone fruits for sure, with a floral notes too, like the waft of field grasses and wheat. It’s a serious wine drinker’s sophisticated white, totally engaging and ultimately delicious.

2016 Mount Horrocks Watervale Riesling
By Mike Bennie
Scintillating, pure, vibrant Riesling. An epee thrust of citrus, green apple, crushed slate-like minerality. It’s got so much energy, feels so pent up, tight, squeaky, impressively long. It’s for drinking now with vigour, or lazing over after a couple of decades in the cellar.

2013 Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Shiraz
By James Halliday
Estate organically grown; open-fermented in purpose-designed vessels, 15% whole bunches, foot-stamped, matured for 18 months in French barriques (40% new). The evocative bouquet semaphores the satsuma plum and blackberry fruits at the heart of the wine, surrounded and supported by fine-grained tannins building authority to the finish of the immaculately balanced medium-bodied palate; the oak is totally integrated.

2013 Mount Horrocks Nero d’Avola
The second vintage from vines imported by Stephanie Toole in ’04. Light, bright crimson; a spring festival of red fruits on the fragrant bouquet and supple, medium-bodied palate that has a quasi pinot noir finish, lifting and expanding on the finish and aftertaste.
