Founded in 1997 by Kevin Mitchell, a member of one of the valley’s long established wine families; Kilikanoon has quickly gained the attention of influential critics on both sides of the Pacific. Kevin Mitchell says: “I try to create a full-bodied style of wine. I like reds that are rich, round and chocolaty, wines that can be drunk young and will also improve for a number of years in the cellar”. Robert Parker Jr, the US critic considered the world’s number one wine taster, declared last year “this is one of the Clare Valley’s finest wineries”.
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.
Hand-picked, free-run juice cold-settled. The bouquet wastes no time in establishing the region, variety and quality of this single vineyard, multi-block riesling. The floral bouquet leads into a palate of striking intensity, texture and structure, lime and lemon both claiming ascendancy, neither winning.
