Rieslingfreak No.10 Zenit Riesling 2023 - Clare and Eden Valleys
Bottle size: 750ML
The 2023 No.10 is a blend of 50% Polish Hill River (Clare Valley) and 50% Flaxman Valley (Eden Valley), from specially selected sites across three of our most outstanding vineyards of the year. The 2023 No.10 effortlessly harmonises the chalky, silken subtlety of Polish Hill River with unbridled potency and structural rigour of Flaxman Valley, creating a Riesling that is perfectly balanced with knife-edge precision. The bouquet is exquisitely perfumed, an enticing symphony of fresh lime, pink pomelo, lemongrass and rosewater. The palate is equally seductive; perfectly pure and pristine with a soft, velvety texture and gentle acidity that imparts a lithe elegance and graceful persistence to the finish. The ultimate expression of an exceptional Riesling vintage.
"Very pale colour. Cream, gardenia and lemon-pith aromas, quite ethereal. The bouquet is the most reserved of this maker's '23s. Some talcy/powder-puff aromas, restrained pot-pourri. Very dry with crisp acidity, all natural: it's the wine in this range that needs the most time and most demands to be cellared. An austere, tight wine: very intense fruit flavour supported by a solid backbone of acidity. The least ready to drink, obviously built to last. (50% Polish Hill River, 50% Flaxman Valley. Almost bone dry on the riesling scale)"
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.
