The outstanding, organically certified Mount Horrocks winery in the Clare Valley has been producing some of Australia's best white wines for the past 20 years and this is no exception. Beautifully fragrant, apple, lemon and pear mingle with vanilla and spice that flow through seamlessly to the palate. The wine is remarkably layered and textural, juicy and long. Pair with roast belly pork.

Buy this if...you want a complex, oaked white that's not Chardonnay.

Spiced orchard fruits laced with honey. Organically certified.

The Producer

Nestling in the Clare Valley north of Adelaide, lies the idyllic setting of Mount Horrocks, a tiny 10 hectare organic estate with a very big following. Under the watchful eye of owner and winemaker Stephanie Toole, who bought the estate in 1993, Mount Horrocks is pretty much at the forefront of the Aussie cool-climate winemaking revolution, showing the world that the country can produce refined, aromatic styles with the discreet use of oak. Only 6 wines are produced, all from organically certified, estate owned vineyards at a cool altitude of 475 metres.

The Winemaker

In Stephanie's own words, her wines are: “essentially hand-made food wines with emphasis on structure as well as generous fruit flavours” (food wines offer a well-balanced combination of crisp acidity, good structure and weight of fruit). She limits production to just 3,500 cases in total each year to be able to concentrate on the highest quality production from the single vineyard sites.

The Region

The Clare Valley, a tiny wine producing region just 22km by 7km, nestles in the northern Mount Lofty ranges, north of the city of Adelaide. With vineyard sites at around 450m above sea level, and the proximity to the cooling effects of the Southern Ocean, this is one of Australia's real-deal cool-climate regions and has been producing wine for over 130 years. Riesling is a key player here, a late ripener which appreciates the cool sea breezes and all important day-to-night temperature fluctuations, producing full, dry styles with long ageing potential. Other grapes include Semillon, Chardonnay and European style Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Pork & Clams

A classic Portuguese surf n' turf recipe, this rich and flavourful stew has complex meaty flavours combined with the saltiness of the clams and acidity of the tomatoes which work well with lighter-bodied European reds or structured New World Whites such as Semillon.
