J. Lohr - Riesling "Bay Mist"
The vines for our 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. Our 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.
Nose: Offering aromas of honeysuckle, ripe pear, Meyer lemon, and lychee.
Palate: These delicious aromas are complemented on the palate by cool climate minerality, rich texture, and a spritz of natural carbonation on the finish.
Finish: Balanced by a dollop of natural grape sweetness and crisp acidity on the finish.
Food Pairing: Enjoy this versatile wine as an aperitif with goat cheese and prosciutto, pork tenderloin, spicy sushi, or with Thai curry dishes.
