South Australia | Clare Valley

Our Review

Rieslingfreak sits at the apex of riesling producers, a dedicated specialist with one of the finest winemakers of the variety. John Hughes established Rieslingfreak in '09 and together with his wife Belinda, they now produce some 11 distinct releases per year, with fruit sourced from the Eden and Clare valleys. The exacting nature of the project is writ large in precise, evocative white wines that vibrate with purity and tension, built not only for early consumption but long-haul cellaring. Hughes’ commitment to the variety is unswerving with incremental increases in quality seemingly coming each year. From dry styles to wines of varying sweetness levels, this is the definitive riesling project in Australia. -MIKE BENNIE
