Mount Horrocks Riesling Watervale 2010

External Review:

Green-tinged straw. Dense citrus and orchard fruits on the nose, with a strong floral element. At once round and juicy, with pear and peach flavors offering good depth and richness, along with a subtle note of cotton candy. A fat, fleshy wine, finishing with ripe peach and honey flavors.

Located 110 kilometres from Adelaide, Auburn is the southern gateway to the rich vineyards of the Clare Valley in South Australia's mid north. Auburn today is a town with many attractions for visitors. As the gateway to the Clare Valley wine region, it has wineries, restaurants, galleries, tearooms and a variety of shops. Travel to the Clare Valley, famed for its wineries, restaurants, country pubs and Riesling Trail. The Clare Valley is perfect for holidays where you want to immerse yourself in the finer things in life. Settle into a bed and breakfast within one of the valley's historic villages, where you'll relish the vistas and the charm of this engaging region. Mount Horrocks Wines is operated by proprietor / winemaker Stephanie Toole, who restricts production to approximately 4,500 cases per annum to achieve her aims of quality and single vineyard expression. With an emphasis on sustainable natural farming and organic practices, Mount Horrocks Wines has vineyards at three sites totalling 10 hectares in the Clare Valley. Stephanie carefully crafts her wines, which she describes as “essentially hand made food wines with emphasis on structure as well as generous fruit flavours”. All grapes are hand picked, and only the finest French oak is used for those wines spending time in barrel. Mount Horrocks Wines was established in 1982, purchased by Stephanie in 1993 and in April 1998, Stephanie opened for cellar door sales in the renovated Auburn Railway station. Read less

This is a crisp, elegant, medium-bodied, dry Riesling offering lovely lemon blossom and grapefruit-like notes as well as a zesty, fresh finish. Enjoy it over the next year.
