A summer red? Definitely.
About The Wine
This organically farmed Nero d'Avola comes from some of the earliest plantings of Nero in the country.
Winemaker Stephanie Toole put down vines on her picturesque vineyard in the Watervale sub-region of the Clare Valley back in 2006.
Now well established, these vines produce a slippery smooth, deliciously decadent version of Nero.
It's got fruit, it's got refinement, it's got everything you'd want in a Nero - truly a top example of this loveable Italian variety.
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.
