Jeanneret Big Fine Girl Riesling 2019

Riesling is typically regarded as the cash cow of the wine industry, able to get from Vine to bottle in anywhere from around 2-4 months. Not so here, where this example - picked over two days in early March 2019 - spending over 200 days on lees.

Strong lime game, that time on lees if anything has turbo charged the aromatics. Apple skins, lemon zest and subtle tropical edge making up the mix. 

The palate is generous, rounded, textural; the pronounced citrus flowing through to the palate. There's a natural zip of acidity that briskly urges things along. 93
