MOUNT HORROCKS CORDON CUT RIESLING 2009 MOUNT HORROCKS CORDON CUT RIESLING 2009

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. She carefully crafts her wines, which she describes as "essentially hand made food wines with emphasis on structure as well as generous fruit flavours". The Cordon Cut Riesling has recently been listed as one of the 1001 wines you must try before you die!


VINEYARD
The grapes for this wine were hand-picked from the Mount Horrocks single vineyard in Auburn, Clare Valley. 'Cordon Cut' refers to a unique, risky process that involves cutting the canes when the grapes are ripe, allowing the remaining fruit to concentrate and raisin naturally on the vine. This results in intense flavour and richness.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Riesling

VINIFICATION
The grapes are handpicked and then fermented slowly until the desired sweetness level is reached.

TASTING NOTE
Pretty, fragrant floral perfumes with a citrus line and underlying vanilla and quince character on the nose. Puzzlingly delicate yet intense, the wine has flavours of ripe lime mingling with essence of orange marmalade, and lively acidity is cutting through the honeyed fruit on the palate.
