Jekel Vineyards, founded in 1972, is recognized as one of the early pioneers in crafting world-class wines from Monterey County. Since our first vintage in 1978, we have built an international following for our critically acclaimed, premium Rieslings, Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Bordeaux blends. Jekel Vineyards...the real meaning of Monterey. Subtle and refined flavors crafted from the heart of the Monterey Appellation.
In the off-dry style, so a bit more fruity on the nose and palate. Very tasty at this price.
Light and slightly sweet. Acidic in the mouth with a light floral aroma. Not quite as full and acidic as expected. Still, it leaves a lingering "tingling" sensation in the mouth (acid) and has a pleasant mouthfeel.
