    Hand-picked from Stephanie’s low yielding vineyard, the ferment is gently plunged 3-4 times a day. The wine then spends 18 months maturation in French barriques, 35% of which are new. This is a textbook cabernet that displays the hallmarks of high quality fruit and attention to winemaking detail. Single vineyard, organically grown, this is a powerful wine from an extremely low yielding vintage.

    Tasting Notes:

    Great depth of colour. Classic cabernet aromas of black currant and herb with a hint of green leaf. A wine of great concentration, deeply flavoured with fine-grained, stylish tannins, lovely oak integration and tremendous length of flavour. Composed and elegant, this is a wine for the finest meal and/or a well selected cellar. To 2040 if you have the patience.

Vibrant and youthful black fruits on entry; they meld into a black olive, tapenade, savoury line whilst a sandy grip of tannins controls and focuses. Great length and drive to the end. A wonderful ...

    2018 Mount Horrocks Cabernet Sauvignon 95 Points A mid to full weighted cabernet with mint, sap, blackcurrant and bouquet garni. Pliant tannins doused with sage, galvanise the flavours. Highly savoury. Very versatile. The oak and unobtrusive acidity are beautifully positioned to let this run for a decade or more. By Ned Goodwin 1st August 2020 2021 Halliday Wine Companion

    Classy cabernet  – Mount Horrocks 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon By Winsor Dobbin The Clare Valley – and Mount Horrocks – are home to some of Australia’s finest rieslings, but Stephanie Toole also produces hugely impressive Nero d’Avola and this beguiling young cabernet.

    2018 Mount Horrocks Cabernet Sauvignon By Nick Butler 95 Points Loads of colour – dense purple. It ticks all of the cabernet aroma boxes, with a tease of regional eucalypt. While ripe and easily carrying rich blackberry and purple-berried fruits, it’s quietly aristocratic, with dried herbs and cedar ahead of supple tannins. Approachable now and will reward time ...
