KILIKANOON 'MORT'S BLOCK RIESLING, CLARE VALLEY 2016
Mort Mitchell is Kilikanoon’s godfather and father to founder and winemaker Kevin Mitchell. Mort planted the vines which bear his name in the Clare Valley sub-region of Watervale in the early 1970’s. He carefully tended to these vines for over 40 years and it is his efforts that allow Kilikanoon to produce such a fantastic example of Clare Valley Riesling year on year. The Watervale soils are typified by fertile red brown loams overlying limestone sub layers, soil profiles that lend themselves to growing Riesling of exceptional distinction and character.
