2018 Jeanneret Big Fine Girl Riesling
- Clare Valley
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
2018 produced huge wines, not just the reds, but the Rieslings too. That said the 2018 Big Fine Girl is nonetheless crisp and zesty, but at the same time has wonderfully ripe and rich aromas reminiscent of dried apricot alongside notes of intense lemon, lime, citrus peel, pear and lychee. In keeping with our style she is big and fine, the palate is intense and concentrated with lemon and lime featuring again and remarkable depth and complexity for a young wine. Enjoy it now or put it away for a while and see it become even more complex and intense.

Exhibiting terrific purity and refinement, the wine shows crunchy apple, lemon/lime peel and subtle jasmine notes on the nose, leading to a brilliantly focused palate that is finely textured with delicate fruit intensity and bright acidity. Splendidly long and engaging. At its best: 2022 to 2031.
