The site of the Mount Horrocks Semillon, while just a few hundred metres from the Riesling vineyard, is very different. Weaker soil and rockier, the vines struggle even in a ‘normal’ season. Semillon vines need to be challenged if flavoursome wines are the aim. In this case long lingering lemon flavours are complemented by creamy lees complexity and a touch of French oak. Add into that a low-yield season and
you have an exceptional vintage.
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.
