For John Hughes, the attraction to Riesling is all encompassing. Growing up on a small vineyard in the Clare Valley, and going on to work with some of the brightest Riesling makers in the country before launching his own venture, John is never far away from his beloved grape. John makes classic Australian styles from carefully selected vineyards with an emphasis on purity and site reflection, as well as German-inspired expressions that balance acidity and sugar with singular precision.

The 2017 Vintage, has to be one of the most exciting vintages I have ever seen with Riesling, and I am going as far to say it is the Riesling Vintage of the century thus far. As a result we have ended with some very refined and delicate Rieslings, nearly as good as what we see coming out of Germany! The Rieslings from the 2017 vintage can be consumed now, and for those that enjoy aged Riesling, the 2017 Rieslings will stock and reward your cellar over time. The No 3 is pale straw in colour, aromas of lemon zest and stone fruit. Flavours of fresh lemon and limes, mandarin, and some stone fruit. The wine has great acid and length. The wine drinks exceptionally well now, but will reward with long term cellaring. Rieslingfreak, John Hughes.
