Rieslingfreak No 33 Clare Valley Riesling 2022
Rieslingfreak No.33 is incorporated both our growers in the Clare Valley. Richard and Anne Hughes (John’s Parents) and Robert and Lyn Jaeschke from Polish Hill River. Situated on the flats in the middle of a valley, White Hutt vineyard has its own very unique microclimate. The vineyard is planted on heavy loam and red terra rossa soil, with limestone subsoil. It is situated 500m above sea level, with an average rainfall of 550mm. The heavy red soils in the vineyard were contributing to the fruit generosity seen in this wine. The Polish Hill River in the wine provides the wine with an acid profile and drive. The wine is made in a great and refreshing fruit-driven style with a soft, velvety palate of extraordinary length. It has classic flavors of ripe lemon and lime and some tropical fruit notes. It drinks well young, but will also reward with cellaring.
