Region Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is a cool and elevated sub-region of the Barossa situated in the Barossa Range to the east, overlooking the Barossa Valley. Low water availabilty, high altitude and strong winds make site selection in the region very important . The vineyeard soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock and are comprised mostly of red clay and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The Eden Valley is renowned for its floral talc scented Rieslings and vibrant fruit pure Shiraz. Cool climate Chardonnay also performs well as does Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Winery RIESLINGFREAK

Rieslingfreak was founded by winemaker John Hughes.

The inaugural vintage was 2009 with a single vineyard Clare Valley Riesling. After that, the Rieslingfreak portfolio expanded to include the Eden Valley and Polish Hill River regions, showing dry, off-dry, Kabinett, sparkling and fortified styles. Each wine is given a number to denote region and style.

‘Our philosophy is to represent the hallmarks of a single region…’

John Hughes, Rieslingfreak

In 2016, John was a Young Gun of Wine finalist. He followed that with a clean sweep of the 2017 Royal Sydney Wine Show, winning five trophies–including Best in Show, the first time a Riesling had taken the gong since 2003. After a lifetime in the vineyard and eight years of graft, John Hughes became an overnight success. John is now considered to be amongst the great Riesling makers in Australia, taking the wine to new audiences and raising the standard for the industry.
