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.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
