  • 2020 Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut Riesling

    150 CASES PRODUCED

    “This is my 28th vintage of Cordon Cut. Just 360 cases were produced this year, and what a challenge, but I am delighted with the outcome.

Its grand complexity cements a delectably enthralling style that perfectly juxtaposes exuberant sweetness with a grand acid line and exceptional ...

    Mount Horrocks 2018 Cordon Cut Riesling By Tyson Stelzer 96 Points A scintillating Cordon Cut of glittering acidity, pronounced limestone mineral structure and a panoply of exotic complexity.

    2017 Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut Riesling By Huon Hooke 95 Points  Bright light to medium yellow colour. The bouquet is fresh and yeasty, bright and youthful. In the mouth, it’s intense and rich, sweet and deeply-flavoured, with a clean finish thanks to plenty of acid. This was a very late harvest (May 15) and a sweeter wine, intense ...
