"A scintillating Cordon Cut of glittering acidity, pronounced limestone mineral structure and a panoply of exotic complexity. Apricots, spice, even incense, this is dessert wine that has it all. Yet for all of its enticing complexity, what really elevates this vintage to a new plane are its precision, focus and tension. Sensational."


Tyson Stelzer, Wine Business Magazine, Jan/Feb 2019


 

"The underlying principal of this special wine is that the canes are completely severed and the bunches of grapes are left hanging on the vine. This causes them to shrivel like raisins, naturally concentrating the flavour.


It’s a complex, highly risky process requiring both skill and experience. The decision to pick is made by Stephanie based on appearance and taste. Technical analysis in this case is of little value. Intimate knowledge of the process on the other hand is critical. Perfect picking conditions meant the fruit arrived at the winery in excellent raisined condition.


Bright pale white gold. Concentrated lemon-lime with vanilla spice. This wine is easy to pick – so distinctive is the Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut style – and this is an outstanding vintage. It is at once delicate yet intense, floral, lemon curd, juicy ripe lime and caramel syrup over a vibrant mineral acidity that ensures it finishes bright, fresh and clean. And oh so more-ish. Another decade-plus potential wine."
