Sommelier Wine Awards 2012

Mount Horrocks Watervale Riesling 2011

GOLD

The sheer purity of the green apple fruit, zesty lime and grapefruit, honey and floral perfume set this elegant Riesling apart from the competition, right from the word go. Exhibiting dry mineral notes, combined with zippy green cooking apples and citrus fruits on an almost off-dry palate, the acidity here is higher than average but, crucially, it’s also well balanced, and the finish is long.
