Mondillo Central Otago Riesling 2015

Dom and Ally Mondillo’s prime variety and wine is Pinot Noir, as 10 ha of their 12 ha vineyard in Bendigo is planted to it. The other 2 ha are in Riesling, and the wine from the site is in my opinion of equal quality to that of the wonderful Pinot Noir. The dry and sweet wine Mondillo Rieslings have been top class. The Mondillo Riesling fruit has also ended up in other producers’ bottlings, and these wines too, have been outstanding, reflecting the standard of the viticulture and the fruit. Clearly, the vineyard site is also special for Riesling, as it is with Pinot Noir, with a distinctive terroir, as the wines have a rich and exotic character. Here, I review the new 2015 Mondillo Riesling, made by Dom Mondillo at the Quartz Reef facility. Dom reports it was a very good growing season in 2015, producing Riesling fruit which was picked with some of the vineyard in snow!
