Rieslingfreak was born from a long-running love for the Riesling variety. Established by John Hughes in 2009, Rieslingfreak started as a passion-project and has grown to a portfolio of 11 different Riesling styles.
Since the beginning, their mission has been to produce quality Rieslings that best represent both style and region. They craft Rieslings that showcase the strength of various South Australian wine regions, including Clare Valley, Eden Valley and Polish Hill River. With a collection that has been created with each of the Rieslingfreak wines being assigned a number, and the number represents both the region where the grape is grown, and the style of the Riesling in the bottle.
This is his Eden Valley Riesling. The fruit is sourced from two vineyards between Eden Valley and Flaxman’s Valley. It’s made in a dry style, looking to capture the sublime characters of these brilliant vineyards. The quality is clear, the expression is pure. The vintage is the best he’s seen. This is Eden Valley Riesling in top form.
Pale straw in colour, and has aromas of vibrant lemon and limes, sweet spice and almond blossom. The palate is full of lemons, grapefruit and apples.
Perfect to serve alongside a lemony-pasta with prawns, a pot of steamed mussels or try matching with a beautiful snapper fillet, lightly picked veggies, goats cheese, pork belly or oysters!
