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 three 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.

This is Eden Valley Riesling in top form. A dead set bargain for any Riesling fan.

About Rieslingfreak

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Feels open for business. Ripe limes and green apples, some floral notes and such juiciness. Delicious and refreshing now. John says this one's a bit of a showpony at the moment and he's not wrong. Great drinking. Crazy value. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

This year, I had the privilege of making wine from three different vineyards in Eden Valley, each taking me on their own individual journey. We had the Zander and Mason vineyards making up most the blend, and these vineyards have always been part of the No.4.

The vineyards providing great flavours, depth and structure to the wine. I also was lucky enough to come across a vineyard from Milton Tscharke, that has provided good acid back bone to the wine, and some extra elegance.

The wine is typical Eden Valley showing amazing floral aromas of white blossom and sweet spice. The Riesling is very giving on the palate, with brown citrus notes, lime cordial, nectarine and some peach. The wine is balanced nicely, and keeps on giving.
