2019 Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling

Winemaker John Hughes has adopted a numbering system for the style of his wines, all from the Clare Valley. This has the quintessential bouquet and flavour of Polish Hill River, a delight now or in the years to come as notes of honey and toast join the citrus/green apple/white peach of today.

2019 Rieslingfreak No.4 Eden Valley Riesling

Its taken time, but I’ve finally become used to John Hughes’ brand name. Here the Meyer lemon/lemongrass flavours of the Eden Valley are correct, even if they have hints of Hunter Valley Semillon, a dreadful accusation for a SA Riesling maker.

2019 Rieslingfreak No.5 Clare Valley Off-Dry Riesling

Bright, fresh and crisp, everything one should enjoy with this off-dry Clare Riesling. As enjoyable tonight as it will be in years to come. John Hughes continues to polish his skills.

95 Points

2019 Rieslingfreak No.8 Polish Hill River Schatzkammer Riesling

A high-quality wine, appreciably richer and sweeter than its off-dry No.5 sibling. The intense lime/lemon duo will outlive most consumers’ patience – another five years could reveal a wine of startling quality.
