Mount Horrocks Semillon 2018

The Mount Horrocks Semillon is sourced from a low yielding, organic, single vineyard of unirrigated vines in Watervale, Clare Valley. The wine was 100% barrel fermented in French oak barriques, 40% new. Lees stirring took place every two weeks for three months, and then allowed to remain on the lees for a further eight months before being bottled without fining. Pale yellow in colour this Semillon displays aromas of stewed apple and lightly toasty, spiced oak. Light and bright on the palate with layers of fruit complemented by subtle savoury notes from the oak and well-balanced acidity on a long, elegant and dry finish.
