Wine Review: This almost clear colored Riesling from Kilikanoon is a very nice classic Clare Valley dry-styled Riesling. It opens with a fragrant lemon juice and lime zest like bouquet with hints of wet stone and a bit of tangerine. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild grapefruit and lemon blend with notes of white pepper and tangerine. The finish is pleasantly dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Riesling would pair nicely with your favorite spring rolls. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2013 Mort's Reserve Riesling is a small blend of two unique vineyards, the higher elevated Khileyre site and the low yielding Walton’s vineyard, both strongly identifiable as from the Watervale district of the Clare Valley. Appearance: Brilliant in clarity, pale straw in colour with youthful green tints. Nose: Lively notes of lemons, fresh citrus and garden perfumes overwhelm the nose, impressively overt yet still sublimely focused. Palate: A riot of citrus peel, lemon zest and lively natural acidity come together on the palate. A true reserve styled experience, made to enjoy now or put down in the cellar for added complexity and interest.

Organic status: not organic
