Rieslingfreak No.2 is sourced from the old Penfolds vineyards, in Polish Hill River, Clare Valley. This is the same vineyard we use to source the grape for Rieslingfreak No.8. This vineyard has large dams, allowing for good irrigation. This irrigation produces vines with large canopies, big bunches and big berries, perfect for any good Riesling vineyard. The wine made from this vineyard provides the refinement and delicate notes, which is typical of the Polish Hill River region.
This year the wine shows generosity. Although it still has its high acid and flinty notes, the wine shows flavours of ripe citrus, kaffir lime, and green apples. The wine has good fruit and acid balance. Drinks well now, and will reward with long term cellaring.
