Style GuideDry Sweet
This is 100% pure expression of single site riesling. Lime aromatics. Tightly coiled, concentrated lemon-lime fruit, slate-like minerality and vibrant acidity. Fabulous lively texture and great length and structure. A completely beguiling wine that looks fabulous now and will age brilliantly for 15 years: without question a classic.
Mount Horrocks’ Watervale Riesling Vineyard is a very high (475 metre) vineyard planted on red loam over limestone, a profile that occurs throughout the sub-region and considered to be ‘classic’ for Watervale riesling.
However that’s where the similarities end. The vineyard is on a gentle slope, facing south. Combined with the high altitude, this makes it a particularly cool spot, ideal for retaining freshness and a crisp palate while allowing generous fruit flavours to develop.
Then there is the biodynamic and organic certification – strictly no chemical input here or in the surrounding land, also owned by Mount Horrocks.
In what is now often considered ‘old fashioned’ all fruit is hand harvested – better for the vines as well as the fruit which is then delivered to the winery in a pristine state.
