2017 Mort's Block Watervale Riesling


Hand selected parcels were chosen from across our famed Golden Hillside vineyards, including the original Mort’s Block Vineyard that started it all. 100% Watervale fruit, only minutes from the Kilikanoon winery.

  • Winemaking

    Completely hand-picked, and taking free run juice only, coupled with the mild seasonal conditions has created a wine of tremendous elegance, varietal character and ageing potential.

    Appearance

    Pale straw in appearance with brilliant clarity and youthful green tints.

    Nose

    Lifted Riesling profile; lemon curd, hints of tropical fruits and freshly squeezed kaffir limes round out the nose.

    Palate

    Limes, citrus rind and subtle tropical nuances wrapped around a core of spine tingling acidity confidently define the cool 2017 vintage conditions. A potent and zesty finish completely frame the canvas of a wine destined to live long in the cellar.

    • Hand-picked, free-run juice cold-settled, all parcels fermented separately with cultured yeast. The bouquet wastes no time in establishing the region, variety and quality of this single vineyard, multi-block riesling. The floral bouquet leads into a palate of striking intensity, texture and structure, lime and lemon both claiming ascendancy, neither winning. More focus than Golden Hillside, but not richer.
