John Hughes has made a name for himself producing some of Australia’s most articulate expressions of Rieslings and this wine is a prime example.

Classic flavours of lemon, lime and some tropical fruits are mirrored on the palate with added complexities of orange pith and green melon. A must have for all lovers of Australian Riesling!
John Hughes’ love of Riesling began with a childhood spent in the family vineyard in the heart of the Clare Valley.

When he began the Rieslingfreak label in 2009, his mission was simple – to focus on and champion the versatility of his favourite grape.
Now available from our Produce Department! Pimientos de Padron, the Padron chilli is most commonly consumed when small and green, when it has a fresh and sweet flavour. It is traditionally sauteed in olive oil and sea salt, and served in tapas bars across their hometown of Spain. When fully mature, they are red in colour and much spicier than their green counterparts. Whilst generally a mild chilli, measuring in between 500 to 2500 Scoville Heat Units, the occasional rogue Padron has earned this chilli the nickname of the 'spanish roulette' as some individual pods are significantly hotter.
It’s made from scratch using traditional Italian recipes from high-quality natural ingredients. Made in small batches with fresh WA milk (no premixed milk base!).
