The 2017 Vintage, has to be one of the most exciting vintages I have ever seen with Riesling, and I am going as far to say it is the Riesling Vintage of the century thus far.
About The Wine
John Hughes has a deep love of Riesling.
His unwavering commitment to it has seen him become one of the country's true artisanal producers of the variety. 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. A dead set bargain for any Riesling fan.
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 pursues a regional and sub-regional 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.
