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.
