Semillon, Watervale, Mount Horrocks, Clare Valley, Australia 2011
The Mount Horrocks Semillon is from a low yielding, single vineyard of un-irrigated vines in Watervale, which is in the Clare Valley about 100km north of Adelaide. Harvest is always done by hand.
As soon as you pour this wine, you are hit by how remarkably light and bright it is. On the nose, we love its beautifully fragrant, apple, lemon and pear aromas. There are subtle hints of vanilla and spice too, which all follow through to the palate.
