RRP $22.50

$20.99 per Bottle
$251.88 per case

Our Mort's Block Riesling is once again a blend of 100% Watervale Riesling, carefully selected and blended from three unique vineyard sites located only minutes from the Kilikanoon winery. An excellent vintage overall, despite a few early weather and seasonal challenges, developed into a classic Clare Valley ripening pattern with warm dry days and cool nights prevailing over this time. The elevated, naturally retained acidities, tremendous balance and vibrant fruit flavours a hallmark of the vintage.

Expert Reviews

94 Points James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2017 - 6 oct 2016

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.

93 Points Gary Walsh The Wine Front - 29 Apr 2016

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.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Brilliant in clarity, pale straw in colour with youthful green tints.

Aroma

Intense flavours of lemon curd, floral notes, fresh limes and tangerines awaken the senses.

Palate

An explosive core of bracing acidity, citrus fruits and hints of green apple beautifully combine in a long and expressive palate experience. A wine drinking superbly in its youth, yet will provide further reward with careful cellaring.

Cellar

Potential of at least 25 to 30 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Kilikanoon Wines is a boutique winery with an international reputation, located in the heart of South Australia’s stunning Clare Valley. Since 1997 and his first Clare Valley vintage, founder and winemaker Kevin Mitchell has produced wines of individuality with strong regional and varietal definition. Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and now Hermitage terroir is all important, especially for their Shiraz, Riesling, Grenache and Cabernet single varietals.

Like many Australia winemakers Kevin Mitchell is highly trained in both the scientific and artistic sides of winemaking. He also comes from a long tradition of grape growing in South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley, where grapes have been grown and wine made since the 1850s.

The first Kilikanoon release was in 1998, with 1997 vintage Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache and two 1998 Rieslings. Since that time Kevin has continually refined his skills and has produced a wide portfolio of Kilikanoon wines from some of Australia’s finest terroir.

Kilikanoon’s philosophy is to make the best wines from the best grapes, no matter where they are, so recently we went to France! We make wine in two regions- the Loire Valley and the Rhône Valley.

In late 2007 Kilikanoon, along with partners Janet Holmes à Court and Greg and Kerrie Paramor acquired Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley, one of Australia’s most revered and historic wineries, established in 1851 and the home to one of the world’s finest collections of barrel-aged fortified wines, including the unique unbroken collection of Vintage dated 100 year old Para Tawny (port) dating back to 1878, when the first wines were laid down, not to be bottled for 100 years.They are delighted to celebrate our first decade. The next looks to be just as exciting.
