Mount Horrocks Semillon 2019


Just a few hundred metres to the north east of the estate riesling vineyard lies the Mount Horrocks planting of semillon. The soil is weaker; the profile rockier. Maintaining finesse in semillon is an art, starting with vineyard site selection (semillon can be heavy bearing in deeper soils). The grape bunches from this vineyard are small, especially in
a low-yielding season.

The result? A bright, lemony, intense and fresh wine; a hint of spice and creamy texture reflecting its time in French oak barriques. Stephanie believes this is “one of the best”. 

Tasting Notes

Bright pale gold, lime-edged.

Impressively light, elegant and tangy with vibrant lemon, grass, and subtle spicy oak over a layer of restrained creamy texture. Stylish, balanced, long on flavour. An appealing seafood or poultry partner that drinks beautifully now though 2030 or more.
