    Winemaker's Notes:

    One of the cornerstones of Kilikanoon's portfolio, the Mort's Block Riesling showcases the unique flavors and characters so unique to the Watervale sub region of the Clare Valley.

    This single vineyard wine, produced from low yielding fruit from forty year old Riesling vines from the Mort's Block Vineyard, is pale straw in color with brilliant clarity and youthful greens tints.

    Intensely varietal, exhibiting ripe citrus, limes and floral notes

    A long and full flavored palate balanced beautifully by crisp natural acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pale straw-green; the clean bouquet leads into a highly focused palate with a core of lime citrus fruit and almost juicy acidity on the finish.

    Kevin Mitchell at Kilikanoon captures Clare in this traditional, limey riesling. Its citrus flavors extend with air, as they will with time in the bottle. While relatively light in body, it's compelling, the lime pith and lemongrass notes persisting along with lovely florals.

    Dry and crisp, with tightly packed, tobacco-scented green apple, pineapple and gooseberry flavors, lingering effortlessly.

    Bright straw color. Lively lime and grapefruit aromas are complemented by talc, honeysuckle and mint. Zesty, tightly wound citrus and orchard fruit flavors pick up anise and smoky mineral notes with air. Very fresh riesling with excellent finishing cut and lingering minerality.

    Wigner's Friend (9/28/2010)
    I adore dry rieslings, but can rarely find one that I would actually consider to be dry. This was right up my alley: dry with a good acidity and plenty of fruit. It paired marvelously with Indian food.
