Mount Horrocks Semillon 2020

64 CASES PRODUCED

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.

 

Tasting Notes

Bright pale gold.

Inviting, complex aromas of citrusy varietal fruit and toasty, spicy oak beckon one to dive into the glass where this vibrant and refreshing wine delivers lemongrass, lemon rind, nuts and herbal notes with spiced, toasty oak and delicious creaminess. Super fresh and super stylish, with great length of flavour.

Remarkably complex given its apparent elegance. Enjoy now through to the next decade.
