Mount Horrocks Shiraz

Mount Horrocks Shiraz

Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Shiraz – This Shiraz was produced from dry-grown older vines (one quarter are more than 100 years old). It is an intensely flavoured, elegant wine displaying ripe fruit and spicy, cherry aromas. It has a full inky palate with great depth, length and fine tannins finishing with a firm dry aftertaste. An elegant yet mouth-filling wine.

242 CASES PRODUCED

Our low yielding Alexander Vineyard is ideally suited to producing high quality, certified organic and biodynamic wine. Here, Stephanie takes a distinctly European approach with one quarter of the hand-picked fruit whole-bunch foot crushed to give more perfume, while the remainder is crushed and fermented for more palate weight. Both components then spend 18 months in French oak barriques. Expressive and beautifully poised, this release is half our ‘normal’ production.

Vibrant cherry red. Alluring, concentrated, intense dark fruits. In the mouth, this is plush and mouth filling, generous without being heavy. Red and black fruits and subtle spice provide varietal allure whilst top class oak adds extra texture and weight. Bright, modern Australian shiraz to enjoy immediately or over next ten to twelve year

As no finings have been found necessary the wines are all suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Only the finest French oak barriques are used for those wines spending time in barrel.

Mount Horrocks Wines restricts production to approximately 2,500 cases per annum to achieve the highest quality single vineyard wines. All three estate-owned Clare Valley vineyards, totaling ten hectares, are ‘A grade certified’ by Australian Certified Organic (ACO).

Only estate grown grapes are used and these are hand-picked and gently handled under conditions that ensure the varietal and site-specific flavours in the resultant wine, as well as its organic status, are retained.

Mount Horrocks

Mt. Horrocks is as boutique as wineries come, with an annual production of only 5000 cases. In addition everything is hand picked and hand made. But this boutique approach is allied to a rigorous and technocratic approach in order to preserve the classic Clare Valley characters of the fruit.

South Australia

Vineyards were first established in the mid 1800s. Some of the early winery names, Wendouree, Knappstein and Quelltaler are still in the region. Nowadays there is a mix of very large companies and a significant number of boutique wineries. The climate is regarded as warm, but there are variations due to altitude. The main wine styles: White – Riesling, Semillon, Chardonnay; Red – Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon.
