Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Brilliant in clarity, almost translucent in color with subtle green tints. Intense citrus and lime flavors predominate the aroma and palate, and complemented by the cleansing natural acidity, provides a long rewarding flavor experience.

A hand crafted wine made in very limited quantities, the Mort's Reserve is a unique blend of the best Riesling parcels from the Mort's Block and Khileyre vineyards. Cellaring potential at least twenty five years.

Critical Acclaim

"From two vineyards in Watervale, including 40-year old vines planted by winemaker Kevin Mitchell’s father, this is a precisely made, powerfully flavored and completely dry Riesling. There’s an earthy tension underlying the lime and green apple flavors, with concentrated intensity hinting a citrus marmalade, a character the wine will develop with age. Cellar it, or decant a bottle now for seafood chowder."
93 Points

"The 2007 Riesling "Mort’s Reserve" is medium straw-colored with a bouquet of mineral, spring flowers, honeysuckle, and citrus. Made in a racy style, this crisp, intense Riesling will evolve for 6-8 years but can be enjoyed now. It is a perfect match for oysters on the half-shell. "
91 Points

"Opens quietly on the bouquet, then progressively builds through the length of the palate and finish, with strong citrus and punchy acidity."
