John Hughes from Rieslingfreak is committed to one variety only and in any given vintage can turn out up to eight different/sub-regional expressions of Riesling. No. 8 Schatzkammer (private cellar) is sourced from the Polish Hill River sub region and is a homage to the great wines of the Mosel and Saar: deliberately picked earlier to retain a little sugar it is perfectly balanced by cleansing acidity making it a great aperitif or the perfect foil to spicy Asain dishes.
"The name of John Hughes winery leaves no doubt about his long-term ambition: to explore every avenue of Riesling,whether bone-dry or sweet." – James Halliday
