James' Review

Owner/winemaker Stephanie Toole has never deviated from the pursuit of excellence in the vineyard and winery. She has three vineyard sites in the Clare Valley, each managed using natural farming and organic practices. The attention to detail and refusal to cut corners is obvious in all her wines. The cellar door is in the old, but renovated,Auburn railway station. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets.

About this winery

Mount Horrocks Wines restricts production to approximately 3,500 cases per annum to achieve the highest quality single vineyard wines. All three estate-owned Clare Valley vineyards, totalling ten hectares, are ‘A grade certified’ by Australian Certified Organic (ACO).

Stephanie carefully crafts “essentially hand-made food wines with emphasis on structure as well as generous fruit flavours”. Only estate grown grapes are used and these are hand-picked and gently handled under conditions that ensure the varietal and site-specific flavours in the resultant wine, as well as its organic status, are retained. As no finings have been found necessary the wines are all suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Only the finest French oak barriques are used for those wines spending time in barrel.

The six wines produced each year are: Mount Horrocks Riesling, Semillon, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d’Avola and Cordon Cut Riesling.
