2010 Jeanneret Doozie Riesling
- Clare Valley
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
A strikingly green hue to the pale yellow of the colour is the promise of a wine still very much in its youth and full of vigour. Lime marmalade, lemon, lychee, apricot and apple dominate a nose of real complexity. On the palate the Doozie has a density and depth not normally associated with Riesling. The well balanced palate is almost creamy – serve cool not cold and it’s full of ripe juicy fruit leading into a long, lingering finish with grapefruit and lime notes swirling through the lovely acidity.
- Food Pairing

The pale, but bright, straw-green colour of this riesling seems to have changed little over the past 7 years, but the wine has made its move into a long plateau of maturity, the rate of change slowing. It’s making this change with certainty, the flavours of lime and lemon suggesting they have sweetened (they haven’t) the wine, while the acidity has softened its attack. A truly lovely wine, ready tonight or in another 7 years.
