Expert Reviews

Stephanie Toole is a master of capturing red wines of restraint, structural definition, poised acidity and low alcohol. The outstanding 2010 season epitomises her uncompromising focus, while simultaneously upholding impressive fruit concentration of immaculately ripe blackberry, black plum and liquorice. The restraint of the style provides space for the detail of site to be expressed through a finely tuned tannin structure, reflecting the chalky mineral texture of limestone soils, with an assuredness that will see it well into the next decade.

Rating 95 - Drink 2015-2025 Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly

Winemaker Stephanie Toole presents a lively, bouncy, happy face of Clare shiraz – rich but not heavy, and emphasising the variety’s pure, sweet aromas and flavours. Clare shiraz can be heavy and dense, but Mount Horrocks manages to be fine-boned and elegant, without sacrificing ripeness or complexity. A pleasantly tart, spicy edge to the fruit hints at the use of high quality oak barrels, without tasting of oak. What a joy it is to drink.

Aroma

Very attractive plush dark fruit aromas, plum and star anise spice.

Palate

Silky smooth and elegant in the mouth, with oodles of dark fruit and spice, fine-grained tannins and very smart French oak influences.

Cellaring Potential

Will cellar well for over a decade yet provides an enormously satisfying drink right now.
