The grapes were hand-picked from the Mount Horrocks single vineyard in Auburn, Clare Valley. 'Cordon Cut` refers to a unique, risky process that involves cutting the canes when the grapes are ripe, allowing the remaining fruit to concentrate and raisin naturally on the vine. This results in intense flavour and richness.
Mount Horrocks Wines is run by proprietor/winemaker Stephanie Toole. Stephanie restricts production to approximately 4,500 cases per annum in order to achieve her aims of quality and single vineyard expression. Stephanie describes her wines as ‘essentially hand made food wines with an emphasis on structure as well as generous fruit flavours’. All grapes are 100% estate grown from three separate vineyard sites totalling nearly 10 hectares in the Clare Valley.
Pale yellow gold. Orange marmalade and fresh vanilla notes lift a most appealing aroma. These carry through to the palate, augmented with lemon curd and mineral-flint tones, a clear, bright sherbet-like tang and incredible length of flavour. It’s wonderfully concentrated and sweet but in no way cloying, managing to combine richness with vitality and texture with zing. This vintage is a little more intense, mouth-filling and flavoursome – partially due to the influence of botrytis cinerea mould, a first for Cordon Cut.
