Rieslingfreak No 5 Clare Valley Off Dry Riesling 2023


Beautiful floral, honeysuckle, lime, talc scented, highly aromatic bouquet: there’s the sense that the residual sugar is lifting the fruit, which is often the way in off-dry and semi-sweet style rieslings. Exquisite aromas, a note of stone-fruits, the taste off-dry but you would never describe it as sweet. It dries off towards the back-palate with a lot of acidity. Beautifully balanced, a magical wine. The most gorgeous wine on the day. (From the Hughes family’s White Hutt vineyard. 13 grams/litre of sweetness. On the riesling scale: half-way through the medium-dry section). 96 points – Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

This medium-dry Clare Valley Riesling is fresh and tightly wound, offering up a well weighted core of sherbet, passionfruit and pear aromas with a gentle lining of spice. A beautiful line of flavour follows, reserved sweetness kept in check by laser like acidity driving through to a long, stony and drying finish. Immaculate balance will see this age very well. 2026-2035. 96 points – Andrew Caillard MW (The Vintage Journal)
