Mount Horrocks Alexander Vineyard Shiraz 2021


Our low yielding Alexander Vineyard is ideally suited to producing high quality, certified organic and biodynamic wine. Here, Stephanie takes a distinctly European approach with one quarter of the hand-picked fruit whole-bunch foot crushed to give more perfume, while the remainder is crushed and fermented for more palate weight. Both components then spend 18 months in French oak barriques. Expressive and beautifully poised, this release is half our ‘normal’ production.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant cherry red. Lovely, bountiful juicy dark fruits and plush oak with hints of lush tobacco leaf.

Full bodied and intensely flavoursome, yet not in any way heavy, the dark red and black fruit, earthy tannins and balanced acid deliver a beautifully rounded wine to enjoy now through to over a decade.

A lovely, lovely wine that you will find it difficult to keep your hands off.
