Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut Clare Valley Riesling 2014

By Tyson Stelzer

96 points

To obtain such complexity and richness and yet uphold fresh, tangy, energetic acidy is the key to the greatest sweet wines, and Stephanie has nailed it this vintage. In aroma, flavour, intensity, structure and vitality this release is a step up even from the magnificence that we have come to expect from this label. It oozes delightful allure and complexity of all manner of stone fruits, tropical fruits, marmalade, pepper, fig and spice. The finish lingers very long carried by beautifully seamless acid flow and impeccable balanced sweetness. Benchmark Australian dessert wine.
