Kilikanoon Mort's Block Reisling 2015

Product Code: Kilmort
Brand: Reisling
Product Condition: New

From the Clare Valley.  This wine is a modern style. Tighty focused, elegant and perfumed, this pristine young Reisling has a deeply floral, heady and faintly crystalline bouquet whose scents of lime juice, lemon and green apple skin reveal undertones of minerals and chalkiness.
It's long and taut, with well-directed but mouthfilling, translucent fruit extending long down a fine, wet slate backbone towards a precise finish of brittle acidity.

  • Low-yielding, hand-picked vines from Watervale provide the fruit here and dictate the style you might say. This is Clare Riesling in a stern frame of mind. The bouquet is all about lemon and grapefruit rather than blossom and talc, the palate is austere and minerally. Slatey acidity is the backbone and the lasting impression on the finish. Lock it up in the cellar and hide the key.

  • Gary Walsh
  • Lime, light talc-like perfume, almost vanilla florals, and lemon butter. It's light, juicy and racy, delivering a clean burst of flavour, flinty texture, and a dry crunchy lime-drizzled finish of good length. Feels precise. Tastes great.

    • A blend from three blocks on a hillside next to the winery in Watervale, this is an expansive and elegant riesling, dominated by the limestone undergirding of the soil in Watervale. Layers of white grapefruit, pear and apple flavors open over the salt and lime stoniness in a generous, silken richness that lasts. It's a racy and powerful vintage of Mort's Block.
