Stunning nose of green apple, passionfruit and ripe lemon. High, razor-sharp acid highlights the fruit gorgeously and is backed up by just the right amount of residual sugar. Mind you, the sweetness is not here to overwork the wine. Its role is just to make it juicier and more concentrated. Even though it’s highly approachable now, this will just keep on giving and developing. Great job by John Hughes, putting a seal on our favourite Riesling outside of Europe.

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.
