Mount Horrocks Semillon 2022
From an isolated estate vineyard, 500m above sea level on the slopes of Mount Horrocks itself, winemaker Stephanie Toole has remained devoted to this wine over many vintages. It’s a full barrel-fermented and matured style with engaging complexity: grilled stone fruits and fennel to start, creamy palate senses following on, with a gorgeous spicy lemony tang that drives the taste profile, finishing with lingering energy. A glorious drink that’s the epitome of Semillon in fine-wine mode.
