Released as our finest Riesling cuveé of the vintage, the 2017 Mort’s Reserve was chosen from a single block on our famed Mort’s Block vineyard. Planted in 1970, it’s red loamy topsoil over the much deeper limestone base and east – west orientated rows are the perfect ingredients from which to craft this wine.
Showcasing the most distinguished and famous of Kilikanoon’s terroir, the vineyards hand-picked and hand-pruned philosophy has been transformed by the winemaking process into a Reserve Riesling of style, grace and complexity with a seriously long cellaring potential ahead of it.
Very pale straw with youthful green tints; brilliant in clarity and almost translucent in appearance.
Fresh limes, hints of sweet melon, lemon curd and a restrained floral elegance overwhelm the nose.
Made in a true Reserve style, the flavours of freshly cut limes, lemon meringue, grapefruit rind and a tightly wound core of piercing natural acidity deliver above all expectations. A fine, long and persistent palate that is built to age.
