About

Watervale is one of the marquee sub-regions of the Clare Valley. It's a region known for its elite fruit purity, particularly in Riesling. This 2016 Riesling from Stephanie Toole at Mount Horrocks typifies this wine style. This organically grown fruit is some of the best the region has to offer and is consistently ranked amongst the top echelon of Australian Riesling. This is one of the finest releases of Mount Horrocks Riesling in their impressive history. With 96 points from Campbell Mattinson, he rates this the highest of the 12 vintages he has tried since 2002. It's a blistering wine, built as much for longevity as excellent drinking in its youth. Impeccable Clare Valley Riesling at its best. A Riesling purists dream.

What it Tastes Like

"This is a stunning riesling. So dry, so slatey, so well fruited, so charming and so long. It’s Clare to its back teeth. Lemon-lime, florals, spice and that characteristic bath salts character. The purity and the sheer deliciousness of the citrus flavours on offer here deserve a mention in the dictionary beside the word: gorgeous." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
