Classy cabernet  – Mount Horrocks 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

By Winsor Dobbin

The Clare Valley – and Mount Horrocks – are home to some of Australia’s finest rieslings, but Stephanie Toole also produces hugely impressive Nero d’Avola and this beguiling young cabernet. This is estate-grown and sourced from a single vineyard, deftly crafted to result in a wine that has coiled power and immediate dark appeal. Forest notes, blackcurrant and well-integrated oak are to the fore in a downright delicious red that can confidently be cellared.Share with a loved one, or a fillet steak.
