2020 Rieslingfreak No. 3, From Ngadjuri Country, Clare Valley, SA
Ask a winemaker what their favourite white is to make, and most will tell you Riesling. However, you’d be hard pressed to find a winemaker who chooses to make only Riesling, but then again, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone quite like John Hughes. While others may seem limited by producing only one varietal, John feels stimulated and inventive and now creates 11 different wines under the Rieslingfreak Label. Rieslingfreak No. 3 offers a burst of citrus fruit clarity bolstered by a strong line of acid which means your mouth is pleasured the whole way, from the tip of your tongue to the tonsils.
2019 Lucky’s, Syrah/ Pinot Noir, From Wiradjuri Country, Orange, NSW
A wine composed of two varietals from either end of the red wine spectrum - robust, spicy Shiraz with the elegance and soft earth prettiness of Pinot Noir-gives us a perfectly balanced wine, immensely pleasurable and perfect for our Australian tastes.
