Wine Review: This wine is for fans of dry styled Riesling. Similar to Alsace. It is almost clear colored and opens with a honey and mild pineapple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and slightly crisp. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild lime with a hint of pineapple and white pepper. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. I would pair this wine with swordfish with a lemon butter drizzle. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Mort's Block Riesling is an intense, racy wine that showcases the strength of Clare Valley with this varietal. Green apple, lemon blossom and bath salts dominate the nose. The taut palate shows grapefruit and lemon pith with a stony mineral edge and crisp, natural acidity. While irresistable now, this wine will age beautifully for 10+ years, developing toasty, honeyed characters.
