Kilikanoon Morts Block Watervale 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 90 White values $20 and under. Tasted and recommended, but no tasting note given. Wine Tasting Notes This 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.

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.
