About J. Lohr 2019 White Riesling, Bay Mist, Arroyo Seco, Monterey
The vines for J. Lohr Estates Bay Mist White Riesling are grown in well-drained Chualar loam soils underlain by stones deposited from the Arroyo Seco River. The Region I climate, in concert with the winds of the Salinas Valley, extend the average growing season well into late October, preserving the natural grape acidity and vibrant fruit flavors.
J. Lohr winemakers' primary goal with this varietal is to evoke the purest manifestation of fruit from the vineyard, enhanced by a combination of cultured yeasts fermented in stainless steel to showcase the grape’s complex character.
The 100% Riesling grapes fermented for an average length of 33 days in temperature controlled tanks and then aged three months in tanks.
The 2019 J. Lohr Estates Bay Mist White Riesling is pale straw in color, offering aromas of honeysuckle, ripe pear, Meyer lemon, and lychee. These delicious aromas are complemented on the palate by cool climate minerality, rich texture, and a spritz of natural carbonation on the finish.
