Rieslingfreak No. 8 Polish Hill River Schatzkammer Riesling 2018

Polish Hill River, Clare Valley, South Australia, AustraliaNo. 8 is John Hughes' foray into pitching RS against acid. From Polish Hill's Jaeschke Vineyard, this swells with juicy acidity, buoying ripe pear, honeysuckle, lime curd, green apple, and perfumed petals up through a lengthy pink grapefruit pithy finish. Great intensity considering its seven degrees alcohol, reminiscent of great German rieslings, and certainly worthy of that peer group. 2018 was a drier season, hence the super concentrated flavours.Tasted: 07 February 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 42.00 private wine shops Producer: RieslingfreakDistributors: Sur Lie
