    Winemaker's Notes:

    After an unexpected burst of hot weather in late January, the 2009 vintage settled down to provide one of the best ripening seasons of the last decade. The 2009 Mort's Block Riesling is an intense, racy wine that showcases the strength of Clare Valley with this varietal. Green apple, lemon blossom and bath salts dominate the nose. The taut palate shows grapefruit and lemon pith with a stony mineral edge and crisp, natural acidity. While irresistable now, this wine will age beautifully for 10+ years, developing toasty, honeyed characters.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A flowery bouquet leads into an elegant and fine palate, with flavours of lime, lemon and green apple neatly tied together with crisp acidity.

    Tight, bright and refreshing for its lime-scented apple and floral flavors that don't quit on the zingy finish. Drink now through 2019. 500 cases imported.

    The winery has always excelled with Riesling from the Clare Valley. The 2009 Mort’s Block Riesling is light straw-colored with a splendid nose of mineral, spring flowers, lemon-lime and other citrus aromas that jump from the glass. Just off-dry (1.4g/L RS), it is reminiscent of a high quality Mosel Kabinett. It will evolve for 5-6 years and drink well through 2021.

    2009 Clare Valley Mort's Block Watervale Riesling This Watervale riesling has a richness of texture, along with complex scents of orange blossom, lime, lemongrass and honey. The flavors come in layers across the palate, clean and mouthwatering. For Cantonese seafood dishes, such as clams with black bean sauce.

    Pale, green-tinged yellow. Lively aromas of lemon zest, mint and chalk are complemented by white pepper and quinine. Dusty, sharply focused citrus and herb flavors gain sweetness in the mid-palate, showing deeper tangerine and pear nuances. The brisk finish features a strong echo of spicy herbs. I find this extremely easy to drink.
