Mount Horrocks Watervale Semillon 2014

13.5% abv

The Mount Horrocks Semillon is from a low yielding, single vineyard of unirrigated vines in Watervale. Harvest is always done by hand.

2014 saw early vintage challenges of extreme heat and rain. Despite this, the overall quality achieved this year was outstanding. The grapes maintained optimum physiological ripeness, resulting in perfect sugar and acid balance. The 2014 harvest gave a much smaller quantity of wine than normal.

The wine was 100% barrel fermented with lees stirring every two weeks for three months. It remained in French oak barriques for a total of eight months. 40% of the oak was new and the remainder one and two years old.

Very pale lemon-straw in colour. On the nose, rich aromas of lemon curd, vanilla pod spice and ripe apple emerge. A beautifully textured and layered wine with delicious apple, apricot and pear fruit flavours, combined with excellent oak and barrel ferment character, giving richness and length. Has a satisfying roundness that leaves you wanting more.
