The Real Review – Wine of the Week

Mount Horrocks Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


95 points

Stephanie Toole’s cabernets are at the more modern, fresh and elegantly structured end of Clare Valley style. They age beautifully.

A bright, fresh style of cabernet with mulberry, blueberry, cedar and wood spice aromas. Fresh and lively in the mouth, medium-bodied, not big but intense and the structure indicates it will mature well with time.  Elegant and poised, a gorgeous wine, enjoyable now but I’d recommend waiting a while for best results.
