Paying respect to the individual vineyard, the grower, and the grapes, this Riesling reflects the very best of the vintage. This style of Riesling has texture and complexity, combining subtle oak notes with citrus flavors and an acid line that will drive this wine many years into the future.

Our notes


The Real Review

Light straw-yellow colour; intense, rich bouquet of oak and barrel-fermented aromas. Complex, toasty and vanillan. Oak is on the strong side. The wine is rich and generously flavoured, soft as well as dry, the texture very good in a rich, broad, full-bodied style with abundant tannins providing lots of textural interest. It's not riesling as we know it, Jim, but a very smart wine. The Real Review, 24 June, 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.


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. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on or call us on 1300 55 44 35
