About The Wine
If you really want to see South Australian Riesling at its best, you need to see it with a little bottle age.
John Hughes has done the cellaring for you. He picks this wine a little earlier than the rest of his Rieslings looking for tension and purity and something that will evolve with time in bottle.
It's a rare treat to see such an excellent expression of Clare Valley Riesling with some bottle age. This is ready to rip into, or you could cellar it yourself for up to another 10 years.
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.
