Kilikanoon Wines Clar Valley - Morts Block

Horrock's Highway, Leasingham, Clare Valley, South Australia, 5452 | 6 ha under vine

 Mort's Block vineyard was planted over 40 years ago by Mort Mitchell, father of Kevin Mitchell, Kilikanoon's founder and Chief Winemaker.

This vineyard is at the heart of a group of Watervale Estates vineyards which provide the core fruit for Kilikanoon's most prestigious labels - The Oracle and Covenant Shiraz, Blocks Road Cabernet Sauvignon and Mort's Block Riesling.

Traditional methods are employed to tender this vineyard; careful rod and spur pruning and hand picking pay homage to its namesake Mort Mitchell.

Light brown earth over limestone provides the ideal growing conditions for premium Shiraz and Riesling.

"He demonstrates a brilliant touch with Riesling as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The cuvees produced under the 'Killerman's Run' label all represent terrific bargains"
