Mount Horrocks Shiraz 2011
It’s been fascinating to watch the wines of 2011 vintage unfold. This shiraz from Mount Horrocks is in peppery, mulchy style.
It’s characteristic of the better red releases of the vintage. Lots of pepper and leaf matter, enough berried fruit to keep it attractive, good aromatically and interesting on the palate. Tannin is ripe and peppery. Modest slip of creamy oak. Excellent drinking.
