    2016 Mount Horrocks Semillon, Clare Valley

    By Tony Love

    Five Stars

    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  

    95 Points

    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.

    Just unreal.

    2013 Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Shiraz

     96 POINTS

    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.

    To 2033

    2013 Mount Horrocks Nero d’Avola

    95 PointsHalliday 95 logo

    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.
