“Growing up on the family vineyard, in Clare Valley, I was exposed to Riesling from a young age. Venturing into mum and dad’s cellar during my university days, I would always sneak a bottle or two of Riesling.

After doing this time and time again at university, I eventually became known as the Rieslingfreak

 

Since the beginning, our mission for Rieslingfreak has been to produce quality Riesling that best represents both style and region. We craft Rieslings that showcase the strength of various South Australian wine regions, including Clare Valley, Eden Valley and Polish Hill River.

Our collection has been created with each of the Rieslingfreak wines assigned a number, and this number represents both the region where the grape is grown, and the style of the Riesling in the bottle.

This style of Riesling has texture and complexity, combining subtle oak notes with citrus flavors and an acid line that will drive this wine many years into the future.

Rieslingfreak No.3 is made from the family vineyard, White Hutt, in Clare Valley. The heavy red clay soils contribute to the fruit intensity of this wine. No.3 is a fruit driven style of Riesling. Classic flavours of this vineyard include ripe lemon, limes, and some melon, with tropical fruit notes carried across the palate. This Riesling drinks well young but will also reward with cellaring.
