Rieslingfreak No 3 Clare Valley Riesling 2023 - Clare Valley
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
The family vineyard in White Hutt always produces wines of great generosity, and the 2023 No.3 is a uniquely balanced wine that exhibits both richness and delicacy. The nose is richly seductive with aromas of candied lemon, yellow peach, toffee apple and fresh mango. The palate is intensely flavoured yet deceptively delicate; with zesty citrus-driven flavours of tangerine and grapefruit complemented by sweet stone fruit and rich tropical notes. The generous and lusciously succulent palate is deftly bound by a tight line of crisp natural acidity that carries through the long, zesty finish.
Power! The No. 3 has more yellow/orange fruited - lemon, mandarin peel, mango - and in such intensity. The finish is again super long and crisp, but there's a real pulpy and luscious texture that I just adore.
"Excellent value here as this Clare Riesling delivers admirable complexity of chalk, citrus, white pepper, and stony complexity delivered with precision and focus. It then builds more exotic lavers of musk sticks, lychee and sherbet flavours all kept in line by a bolt of fresh acidity, with excellent volume lingering over a sustained finish. A serious Clare Riesling for a bargain price. Now-2033"

Rieslingfreak is the inspiration of John Hughes, a man who is very passionate about his rieslings. The first vintage of the brand was in 2009, with a single vineyard Clare Valley Riesling. Since then, the label has expanded to include Eden Valley and Polish Hill River regions.
The brand philosophy is to represent the hallmarks of a single region with their iconic winemaking style. Each Rieslingfreak wine is allocated an individual number. This number represents not only the region in which the fruit was grown, but also the style and technical specifications with which the wine is made.
Rieslingfreak is about providing consumers with a range of specially crafted rieslings embracing both different regions and styles. It is only released from vintages considered worthy.
