Mount Horrocks Alexander Vineyard Shiraz 2022

  • Mount Horrocks Alexander Vineyard Shiraz 2022


    A ‘European’ winemaking approach, with one quarter of the hand-picked fruit being whole-bunch foot crushed, gives more perfume, while the remainder is crushed, destemmed and fermented for more palate weight. Both components then spend 18 months in French oak barriques.

    Stephanie’s aim has always been to produce a wine that’s fresher, balanced and drinkable on release. The Alexander Vineyard produces full flavoured grapes from vines that are healthy and balanced but relatively low yielding. This results in optimal flavour at moderate alcohol levels.

    Tasting Notes

    Vibrant red-purple. Inviting fragrant red and black fruits, cherry, plum and cocoa envelope the nose. Sweet spice and leafy tobacco add complexity to the generous fruit, supple, elegantly structured, beautifully oaked, and with gentle, rounded tannins. The delicious flavours linger. A bright modern Australian shiraz to enjoy immediately or over the next ten to twelve years.

    94 Points
    Deep-ish bright red-purple colour with aromas of nutmeg/spice, which also come through strongly on the palate. Full-bodied, rich and deep, with velvet mouth-feel and a long carry. The tannins are there but they are super-smooth and pliant.
