Rieslingfreak No. 99 2019

Clare Valley, South Australia, AustraliaNo.99 is an experimental wine for true riesling freak John Hughes. This was fermented with wild 'exotic' yeast strains for maximum funk and texture, prior to resting in large format oak for 12 months. Dry and earth-driven, with broken stones, flax bedding layers of lime sherbet, bright lemon curd, pear skin, cold cream, finishing with a bitter lime twist on the dry finish. Certainly funky, and a more severe edged wine for those looking for the style.Tasted: 27 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 44.00 private wine shops Producer: RieslingfreakDistributors: Sur Lie
