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.

Rieslingfreak No.2 is a dry Riesling, showcasing many of the refinements typical of the Polish Hill River region. The limestone and shale rock soil profile is reflected in the Riesling with mineral and slate notes, underlying fresh citrus characters, predominantly lemon and grapefruit. Wines from this vineyard can be consumed upon release, or cellared for many years.

Bright, pale yellow colour, with a very attractive flowery bouquet: gardenia, dried flowers, perhaps boronia. The palate is intense and refined, crisp and linear, with lovely flowing harmony and length. Clean, soft but dry finish. A beautiful young riesling. Grapes from the Jaeschke family vineyard. Drink: 2021-2033; Price: $37.00; Alcohol: 10.5%; Rating: 96 Points; Huon Hooke; Real Review
