It can be difficult to raise children- should you keep them away from germs or should you expose them to uncontrolled sources of radiation? Do you vaccinate your children, or do you ignore all medical science and allow whooping cough to re-enter the populous? It’s a mine field! One thing is clear however is you should cut the cord at the appropriate time and not molly coddle them. We once raised a child in the Oddbins offices, sent it off to university at the age of 8 and that child grew up to be F. Scott Fitzgerald, so, yeah.
When making sweet wine it can be similarly lucrative to cut the cordon. ‘Cordon Cut’ refers to a unique process which involves cutting the canes when the grapes are ripe, allowing the remaining fruit to concentrate and raisin naturally on the vine. This results in an unprecedented intensity and concentration of sugars, delivering flavours of bright lemon curd, key lime pie, pear, honey and vanilla.

Started in the 1980’s Mount Horrocks Wines was purchased by Stephanie Toole in 1993. In April 1998, Stephanie re-opened the Auburn Railway station following substantial renovation, as Mount Horrocks’ cellar door. It is now open for tastings and sales each Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday, 10am-5pm.
Stephanie Toole produces outstanding quality grapes from her own vineyards. Her persistence with classic, no-compromise winemaking and a fully integrated organic approach to growing and making sets Mount Horrocks wines apart from the mainstream. The result of her unwavering focus over twenty-five years is an exemplary range of wines, each of the highest quality and classic in style yet unique, due to their single site origins combined with the maker’s sensitive approach.
Mount Horrocks Wines has been widely recognised by experts and wine lovers. James Halliday in his 2019 Australian Wine Companion reaffirmed his Five Star Red Rating (Outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity). In 2004 Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut Riesling was listed as an ‘Australian Icon Wine’ in Wine Spectator magazine (USA) and the 2011 Cordon Cut was awarded both the Decanter (UK) and International Wine Challenge (UK) Trophies for ‘Best Australian Dessert Wine over £10’; a rare achievement. Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut Riesling was also the only Australian wine to be served at the official Lord Mayor of London’s luncheon to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 80th birthday at Mansion House.
