About The Wine
This was the wine originally conceived by John and his wife Belinda as the wine that they would drink on their wedding day.
It's a special wine to them. The best of the best fruit from the vintage from across their Clare and Eden Valley vineyards. They call the Zenit (German for 'Zenith') - a 'super Riesling' of sorts.
There is precious little of this wine available. It will live forever in the cellar yet has the fruit depth and flavour intensity to be enjoyed right now. This is John's finest Riesling and is not to be missed.
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.
