SWEET WINES: LIGHT AND LIVELY

Light, lively styles - NOW OFF LIST: CORDON CUT, Mt Horrocks. Clare Valley, Australia (Half Bottle)

2017 CORDON CUT, Mt Horrocks. Clare Valley, Australia (Half Bottle)

Bin: 909
Alcohol Percentage: 11.5%
Size of bottle: half bottle
Area: Clare Valley, a relatively cool area home to thrilling dry riesling (the best in the new world), some fresh reds and this lively sweet white.
Grape Variety: 100% Riesling, the vine cane 'cut' when mature, allowing a natural drying process in the open air.
Producer: Stephanie Toole has run Mt Horrocks since 1993. She has just 10 hectares, all produced to exacting standards in both the vineyard and winery. The perfect example of the over-used term "hand-made".
Old Bridge Rating: Sweet but not heavy (around 180 grammes of sugar per litre) with thrilling freshness beneath. This is outstanding in a lighter style.
Press Reviews: Gold or Silver Medal for the last 5 years in the Decanter World Wine Awards.
16.5 points, www.JancisRobinson.com - "Marmalade, lime pickles, very attractive pure floral character, thick viscosity offset by fine acidic finish. Luscious, indulgent, delicious."
94/100 from Andy Howard MW in Decanter Magazine, December 2018 - "The wine shows remarkable purity and elegance. Still very youthful, the concentrated apricot-dominated palate also has pear and cinnamon notes. A touch of botrytis in 2017 added further complexity" - 94/100.
