Kilikanoon Clare Valley Watervale Mort's Block Riesling 2010

Member Review by Hana Choi:

Greg was right: These are begging for some oysters! Bone dry, this Aussie Riesling is fragrant with floral, lime and touch of peach. Love the minerality and vow to find some briny shellfish to enjoy with it next time.

Founded in 1997 by Kevin Mitchell, Kilikanoon is a boutique Clare Valley winery with an international reputation for producing regionally expressive, terroir-driven wines. The Kilikanoon property, featuring a circa 1860s stone cottage housing Kilikanoon tasting room, was originally settled by early English migrants who named it after an historic old mansion in Cornwall. On purchase of the historic property in 1997, mature vineyards of shiraz, cabernet, grenache and riesling that had been planted by Kevin’s father, Mort in the 1960’s, became a part of Kilikanoon, and now form the heart of the estate vineyards. 10 years on, with the addition of partners Nathan Waks, a principal cellist with the Sydney Symphony, and Bruce Baudinet, Managing Director of Oracle Estates, Kilikanoon is rated by US and Australian critics as one of the Clare Valley’s outstanding wineries, producing bracingly intense and long-lived rieslings, along with powerful, yet balanced shiraz, grenache and cabernet sauvignon.

I love a great dry riesling, and this one is perfect! I tend to love REALLY dry wine, so I loved this one, but might be too dry for some tastes. A bit of floral and fruit, with a nice dry mineral finish.
