2022 Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling

2022 Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling


Clare Valley, South Australia

Rieslingfreak No.2 is a dry Riesling, showcasing many of the refinements typical of the Polish Hill River. The limestone and shale rock soil profile is reflected in the wine with mineral and slate notes, green apple flavours, and underlying green citrus characters, predominantly lemons and grapefruit. Wines from this vineyard can be consumed upon release, or cellared for many years. - John Hughes, Winemaker

"Now this is very good. We know that 2022 in the Clare Valley was a great year for Riesling. Time will tell if it is better than the great 2021 vintage, but my money is on it. Here, in this 2022 No. 2 from Polish Hill River, we witness all the coiled power and citrus fruit musculature of the season on full display, with citrus blossom, apple purée, star anise/fennel seed, cinnamon stick, lavender, Nashi pear and even kiwi fruit. At this point, it's still very closed but is a sensational representation of the year and the area. This is nowhere near fully extended. Patience, padawan." - 96 Points, Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

"Pale colour; dusty, stony, smoky struck-flint aromas, background tropical flowers as well. The wine is tremendously fresh and zesty on the tongue with sherbety acidity, the acid chiming in with a salty mineral thing that sustains interest right through the long finish. Fascinating wine; big future." - 94 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review
