Top class for Mount Horrocks.
About The Wine
The Mount Horrocks Shiraz is a top example of Shiraz from the Clare Valley.
The fruit, farmed organically and crafted by Stephanie Toole, comes from one of the Clare's great sites. It's made to be silky smooth and approachable as a young wine but also built with the architecture to go a decade or more in the cellar.
Maybe a little atypical of the usual Mount Horrocks style, but a premium wine nonetheless. If you are looking for serious premium Clare Valley Shiraz for the cellar, this is a great option.
About Mount Horrocks
Though Mount Horrocks came into being in the mid 80s it was when Stephanie Toole took over in 1993 that great things came to pass.
She is now known as one of Australia's best white wine makers, with some top notch reds also in her arsenal. She has three vineyards in the Clare Valley, all certified organic, and she deliberately restricts yields to maintain absolute quality.
In 1998 she opened the old railway station in the Clare Valley town of Auburn as a stunning cellar door.
