Jeanneret Merlot 12pk 2011
The Jeanneret story begins with Swiss chemist Denis Jeanneret and his wife, Pat, deciding to have a shot at self-sufficiency on their property in the Skilly Hills. Blessed with typical Swiss precision and attention to detail, Denis turned out to be a natural when it came to crafting classic Clare Valley wines. In 1992, the first Jeanneret bottles were unleashed on the Australian wine lover, and the winery quickly gained an enviable reputation for producing generous and lively regional wines. Today, Denis’ son Ben is behind the wheel. The winemaking philosophy is one of letting nature take its course. Hand-pruning, hand-picking and minimal handling result in wines that are impeccable representations of the Clare Valley.
