2012 Kilikanoon Mort’s Block Watervale Riesling. Clare Valley. 12.5%

Kilikanoon Mort's Block Riesling 1

Lot’s has been said about the 2012 Riesling vintage.

Love the energy and purity of this wine.

I found similar descriptors in this as the Castle Rock Riesling.

Lemons and Limes. Minerals and cleansing acid. Cold tea and green apples.

I found the Castle Rock good, but boring. This, on the other hand is very good.

Some wines just have a certain zing , or X-factor that makes it bristle with energy and seem alive.

Throw in a hint of baby powder that makes this aromatically very compelling.

Highly Recommended and excellent value for money. Must get more!

$25 from La Vigna
