Jeanneret Watervale Big Fine Girl Riesling 2018 (Clare Valley, South Australia) "...textured, zippy, fresh..."
Their philosophy is simple and straight to the point, to make the best wines possible.
They’re not one for trends or rules, they just make what they love. Their wines are generous in flavour and quality. Charismatic and spirited.
Their motto ‘naturally perfect’ reflects their passion to make each of their wines a true expression of the time and place from which they come.
"This is the wine of the three Jeanneret Rieslings from ’17. The sparkling acidity of the vintage is there, and so is the lime juice, apple and mineral fusion that – together with the acidity – gives the wine stature now, and the capacity to build into a high-class mature riesling. 12.5% alc." - 95 Points, James Halliday
"Leaping, and I mean leaping out of the glass are aromas of citrus and white flowers and a very complex and savoury element of umami that I absolutely love in Riesling and don’t know how it gets there. Some years, great years, it just does. And, in this instance, it carries to the palate where it contributes massively to the mouthfeel with a delicious and mouth-wateringly saltiness. This is an enormous wine in every respect. The nose has so much going on it’s almost confusing (in a great way) and the palate is absolutely huge, textured, zippy, fresh and rich and absolutely delicious. One to cellar? I think so and I’m looking forward to seeing it in 10 years." - Producer
