Mocandunda Stony Ridge 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 very serious Riesling with steely minerality and a taut line of acid that create its pristine mouthfeel. Crisp flavours of lemon blossom, fresh lime and mandarin peel lead to softer, subtle notes of lemon myrtle and thyme, balancing the tight grip of the acidity and minerality and leading to an exquisite finish.
