Tasting Notes

Dark fruited and mouth coating chalky tannins come naturally to this Italian derived variety. Then add the classic Clare Valley sweet fruit in their reds and restrained 13.7% alc, and you have the essence of this Mount Horrocks. Interestingly, on night 1 the dark savoury grippyness dominated the fruit; but on night 2 we drank it with a few unlikely roasted vegetable dishes from Ottolenghi's Simple recipes (eg cauliflower, cabbage and asparagus- who would have thought!) plus salmon cooked on the Barbi - the Nero dAvola calmed to blend both its fruit and savouriness with the fresh food. A fascinating match! - Michael L

Mount Horrocks Wines restricts production to approximately 3,500 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).

Stephanie carefully crafts 'essentially hand-made food wines with emphasis on structure as well as generous fruit flavours ". 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. 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. - Winery Note
