2023 Mount Horrocks Riesling Watervale Clare Valley – More than two decades ago Stephanie chose the site for the Mount Horrocks Watervale Riesling Vineyard. The beautiful south facing, high altitude location may have been a surprising choice back then, but now, many are praising the merits of these cool vineyard sites, especially for riesling.
ACO organic certification and hand tending both reinforce Stephanie’s determination to push the boundaries of sustainability, while at the same time, enhancing wine quality. There is no better example than the 2020 Mount Horrocks Watervale Riesling – a beautiful, delicious wine, its concentration reflecting the tiny crop, the lowest in decades.
This is a wine that reflects the season, but even more so, an example of balance, exceptional power and finesse, all wrapped up in a convincingly drink-me-now combination of flavour, structure and balance.
Bright, lime-edged, pale white gold. Delicately fragrant with appealing floral orange blossom, lime, honeysuckle and spice. Green apples and spice, a little pear and ginger too. A bright and lively number, with juicy fruits wrapped in taught mineral acidity. It feels all silky slippery in the mouth, such is the appealing texture and weight of this racy, dry Riesling that it can be cellared with the utmost confidence.
A wine of great purity and style that will age confidently for 10-12 years.
