Rieslingfreak No.5 Clare Valley Riesling
Rieslingfreak No.5 Clare Valley Riesling - Rieslingfreak No.5 is harvested earlier in the season, to provide a wine that has slightly less alcohol. Being ‘off dry’, the sugar is balanced nicely with the acid, providing a fruit-driven style with a hint of sweetness.
The Nose displays aromas of lifted green apple blosom, finger lime and bath salts. The palate has finese, generosity and structure, with a persistent mineral finish.
Young gun winemaker and Riesling ‘freak’ John Hughes has taken the industry by storm with his on-point and diverse range of Riesling wines. His first vintage was in 2009 with a single vineyard Clare Valley Riesling, after which John expanded to the Eden Valley and Polish Hill River.
John says, “Our philosophy is to represent the hallmarks of a single region with our iconic winemaking style, by combining modern viticulture and winemaking techniques. Each Rieslingfreak wine is allocated an individual number, which represents not only the region in which the fruit was grown, but also the style that the wine was made in.”
