2015 Mort's Reserve Riesling


Released as our finest Riesling cuveé of the vintage, the 2015 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.

  • Winemaking

    The 2015 vintage proved to be an excellent one for Riesling. We carefully monitored flavour development and identified very early in the vintage which blocks were looking superior. The quality of the fruit almost enabled the wine to make itself. The cooler nights are instrumental in retaining high natural acidities, intense flavours and long ageing potentials.

    Showcasing the most distinguished of Kilikanoon’s terroir, Mort’s Reserve Riesling is a symphony of texture and complexity. We use only hand harvested fruit and free run juice, before a long and cool ferment; crafting the unequivocal essence of Kilikanoon.

    Appearance

    Pale straw with youthful green tints. Brilliant in clarity, almost translucent in appearance.

    Nose

    Fresh limes, lemon curd, tangerines and subtle floral notes overwhelm the nose.

    Palate

    Made in a true Reserve style, the flavours of freshly cut limes, citrus rind and piercing natural acidity beautifully combine to create a wine that over delivers on all expectations. Fine, long and extremely age worthy.
