Rieslingfreak No 1 “Grounds of Grandeur Riesling” 2020


The 2020 Rieslingfreak No.1 is the second release of this icon Riesling. Rieslingfreak No.1 Grounds of Grandeur Riesling pays respect to the individual vineyard, the grower, and the grapes by showcasing the best of the vintage. Situated 5km South-East of the Clare township, Rob and Lyn Jaeschke’s Polish Hill River vineyard is on grey-brown loam over sandy limestone and shale rock. The Riesling vines are approximately 14 years old, planted on 38-year-old root stock.

Hand-picked on the 20th February 2020, the grapes were placed in cold storage for 48 hours, ensuring they were nice and cool prior to whole bunch pressing the following day. The juice was pressed lightly to a stainless-steel tank, taking only the most pristine free run juice at 420L/T. The juice was settled for 5 days prior to racking into barrel, then allowed to slowly warm naturally prior to wild fermentation with 100% indigenous yeast to complete dryness. The wine stayed on lees for 10 months prior to racking in November 2020, then matured quietly in barrel for a further 12 months until late November 2021 when it was prepared for bottling.
