Origin: Clare Valley
Region: South Australia
Style: Generous and refreshing white wine
Orange, limes, lemons providing a citrus line in the glass, with green apple and pear also dominating. The intensity of a fresh fruit salad. Generous and refreshing fruit driven style with a soft, velvety palate of exceptional 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. A wine to enjoy with or without food.
John Hughes is a man on a single-varietal mission – to perfect the craft of Riesling through 9 different expressions of it. When you think about it profoundly, this is THE Riesling to seek out. No way a guy can get it wrong 9 times in 11 consecutive vintages. The two Eden Valley vineyards for No.4 are planted on shallow sandy loam + clay and are situated up to 500m above sea level. They give some of the most gorgeous expressions of Riesling we’ve ever come upon, not just in Australia, but in life.
