Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Shiraz 2010 Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Shiraz 2010

Mount Horrocks don't just excel at classic Clare Valley Riesling, but produce highly individual and hand-crafted reds too. This is a stunning, silky and elegant wine that packs a punch of deep and dark flavours.





ONLY AVAILABLE IN UNSPLIT CASES OF 12



VINEYARD
The 2010 Mount Horrocks Shiraz was produced from estate owned single vineyard in Watervale, Clare Valley.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Shiraz

VINIFICATION
The fruit was hand picked and fermented to dryness on the skins to improve structure. 10% was whole-bunch, foot-crushed in open fermenters and the rest in red wine fermenters, pumped over five times a day with maximum temperatures reaching 28-30°C.

It was racked into barriques and aged for 18 months in French oak, of which 40% was new, the rest one and two years old.

TASTING NOTE
The Mount Horrocks Clare Valley Shiraz 2010 is deep bright black cherry colour with very attractive plush dark fruit aromas, plum and star anise spice. Silky smooth and elegant in the mouth, with masses of dark fruit and spice, fine-grained tannins and very smart French oak influences. A wine of great purity and focus, generous yet sophisticated, delivering an identifiably Australian Shiraz yet in the very modern mould.
