Rieslingfreak No.12 is harvested from individually selected vines from the Mason and Zander family vineyards in Flaxman Valley in High Eden, a premium sub-region of Eden Valley. Renown for growing world-class Riesling of unrivalled elegance, this wine captures the very essence of the High Eden subregion in all its splendour. First released in 2021 to celebrate John’s achievement as being heralded as Barossa’s Winemaker of the Year, this wine is exceptionally delicate and refined, with a highly perfumed bouquet and elegantly structured palate. 2022 No.12 has an intensely perfumed bouquet of lemon thyme, Kaffir lime, rosewater, and elderflower, while the palate is delicately structured and perfectly balanced with silky, talc-like minerality and finishing with crisp natural acidity. A laudable successor to the highly regarded 2021 inaugural vintage.
