WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS
The wine is made in an ‘Off Dry’ style, containing 14g/L sugar. Although sweet, it is harvested earlier than the dry wines, to ensure good acid to balance out the sweetness.

AROMA
Bright, fresh, aromatic. Aromas of mandarin, ripe limes, and fresh lemon.

PALATE
The wine shows flavours of lemon curd, grapefruit and melon. A tight acid line, which is balanced nicely by natural acid.

REGION NOTES
Harvested from the family vineyard, situated in White Hutt, just north of the Clare township. The vineyard in grey clay over limestone. With the vines planted in an east/west direction.

JAMES HALLIDAY'S TOP 100 WINES OF 2020
From the Polish Hill River. Bright straw-green, it's an utterly delicious wine which has aromas and flavours that seem to change in quick succession, with Meyer lemon, white peach and Granny Smith apple in full song. Its mouthfeel and the length of the finish are both exceptional. Halliday Wine Companion, 1 November, 2020

Producers notes

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.
