Mocandunda Single Vineyard Riesling
The Mocandunda vineyard supplies fruit for many of the region’s most renowned wines, and retains only a small quantity for their own label. The brand is owned by three legends of the industry in South Australia, including viticulturalist Rodger Ackland, who not only founded Mount Horrocks in the 1980s but has planted many (if not most) of the vineyards in Clare. The rustic cellar door knocks out a good pizza too – worth stopping by if you are in the area.
This is a fuller (though still dry!) style of Riesling with bags of character. On the nose classic lifted citrus fruit characters of lemon blossom, fresh lime and mandarin peel abound, accompanied by nuances of tropical fruits. The palate has richness and displays fruit intensity of fresh, sweet lime coupled with hints of mango and guava. It retains minerality and a lively acid structure which carries through the palate and provides balance with a long, clean finish.
