A producer with a single-minded varietal focus is a rarity in Australian wine, John Hughes is one of those rarities. 

John was born on an old Riesling vineyard in his home of the Clare Valley. To this day he produces some of South Australia's most articulate expressions of Riesling as his sole winemaking mission. 

The wines show exquisite purity and elegance and sit comfortably among the best examples that South Australia has to offer.

"Complete and utter dedication to riesling, from the Eden and Clare valleys, made with meticulous care, thought and more. Every year, a whole host of different rieslings, each with its own reason for being. Modern Australian wine would be lesser without this single producer. Rieslingfreak is not just a quirk; it’s an essential."
- Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion - Top 100 Wineries of 2023)

"Rieslingfreak sits at the apex of riesling producers, a dedicated specialist with one of the finest winemakers of the variety... 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 (Halliday Wine Companion)
