95 pts - 2022 Kilikanoon Mort’s Reserve Riesling
The 2022 Mort's Reserve Riesling is an interesting wine! The acidity is green, with lime inflections, but it brings with it a succulence and intensity that spears through the very heart of the fruit. It has 11% alcohol, which addresses the acid query. When I am judging at shows, there is always one wine that gets a gold from me based on the level of uncomfortability of the acid—this would get that medal. I give these because they indicate the wine will age prodigiously, and while it may not be easy drinking in the short term, it suggests a longevity that will hold it in very good stead. Lean, austere, tight and focused, it's like a spear head in flight. It almost whistles with its pace. Don't drink it this year or next. Note the drinking window.
