2018 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.

A generally cool and dry vintage with lower than average rainfall before and during the harvest. Despite the drier conditions, cropping levels were generally about  average, with even ripening and perfect flavour development across all our Golden Hillside vineyards.

  • Winemaking

    A high quality year, with all parcels kept and vinified separately until the final cuvée was assembled. The mostly hand picked and hand sorted selections were crushed, destemmed and cool fermented, allowing the variety's renowned intensity  of flavour and crisp natural acidity to be retained throughout the process.

    Appearance

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

    Nose

    An intensely varietal nose featuring lifted citrus notes, freshly squeezed lemons and sublime floral nuances.

    Palate

    Appealing, lively and spine-tingling to its core, the palate perfectly balances the flavours of lime juice, lemon curd and subtle tropical notes with naturally occurring acidity in a generous, yet tightly wound, persistent finish. A wine with a long cellaring potential ahead of it.
