Rieslingfreak No 2 Polish Hill 2020
The Polish Hill River Vineyard was acquired by Rob and Lyn Jaeschke in 2010 and is known locally as the Hill River Vineyard. With Max Schubert (of Penfold’s fame) planting the first vines on the property in 1981, the vineyard was destined for big things. Situated in Polish Hill River, approximately 3 miles south-east of the Clare township, the vineyard is planted on grey-brown loam, over sandy limestone, and shale rock. Planted at 460m above sea level, the average rainfall is 625mm. Rieslingfreak No.2 is a dry style of Riesling, showcasing many of the Polish Hill River region’s refinements. The limestone and shale rock soil profile is reflected in the wine with mineral and slate notes and underlying fresh citrus characters, predominantly lemon and grapefruit. Wines from this vineyard can be consumed upon release or cellared for many years.
