Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling 2021
Region: Polish Hill River - Clare Valley
John Hughes, the man behind Rieslingfreak is obviously mad about Riesling, he has a huge passion for this variety. John started Rieslingfreak in 2009 as a passion-project that has grown to a portfolio of 11 different Riesling styles. They craft Rieslings that showcase the strength of various South Australian wine regions, including Clare Valley, Eden Valley and Polish Hill River. Each of the Riesling being assigned a number, representing both the region where the grape is grown, and the style of the Riesling in the bottle. There are not many grape varieties in the world that provides a winemaker the same level of versatility that Riesling does, from dry to sweet.
No.2 is sourced the Polish Hill River vineyard owned by Robert and Lyn Jaeschke at 460m alt. The limestone and shale rock soil profile are reflected in the wine with mineral and slate notes, green apple flavours, and underlying green citrus characters.
