Lime pith, soil, a touch of Crayola and low chalky, quince fruit with a melon, floral top note. Broad and a touch fleshy on entry, this then snaps the acidity whip and it cuts through the fruit like a laser, driving right through to the lemony finish. Shows flashes of peach, tea and chalk. This has a nice amount of flesh with bright flavors supported by the blazing acidity, which keeps the finish going and going. 90pts

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.

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.

Pears and citrus on the nose. Lemons and Pear in the mouth. The first sip really made my jaw tingle! A very bright citrus finish.

Excellent example of a dry riesling. Pale straw in color,with opening aromas of petrol. This dissipate in the glass, and there is a hint of lime blossom and a clean, gravelly smell. On the palate, piercing lime flavors with more minerality at this stage of its life than fruit. Had with country captain chicken. Refreshing, steely, bone dry.

Wine Tasting NotesThis single vineyard wine, produced from low yielding fruit from 40 year old Riesling vines, is one of the cornerstones of Kilikanoon's portfolio. The Mort's Block Riesling showcases ripe citrus, limes and floral notes on the nose. A long and full flavored palate is balanced by crisp, natural acidity.

Winemaker's Notes:

Appearance Brilliant in clarity, pale straw in colour with youthful green tints. Nose Intense aromas of fresh limes, floral notes and garden perfumes penetrate the nose. Palate Generously flavoured the flavours of limes, lemons and citrus carry over seamlessly from the nose. A wine made to either drink now or to put down for many years to enjoy with careful bottle maturation, its core of natural acidity providing terrific balance, great palate length and satisfaction.
