Floral nose with a crisp spritz of acidity on the tongue. Good emollient structure and nice mouthfeel. Finishes on gooseberry notes.
External Reviews for Jekel Vineyards Riesling
A delightful wine, and a classically inexpensive Monterey Riesling. Bone dry and crisp in acidity, it shows citrus, flower and mineral flavors, with a relieving touch of honey and vanilla. Sommeliers should scoop this one up. Production was 18,000 cases.
The cool climate of the northern Salinas Valley enabled the grapes to hand long into the harvest while maintaining bright acidity. The result is a lovely Riesling, off-dry and refreshing in the manner of a fine German wine. It was blended with a splash of Muscat. The flavors of green apples, peaches, tangerines and honeysuckle are clean and vibrant. The residual sugar is 1.42%.
This Riesling is full of peaches and apples from beginning to end. The flavors culminate with a tantalizingly crisp juiciness.

Another fine JR from this respected Salinas Valley winery. It's strongly flavored, with extracted peach, honeysuckle, gingerbread and citrus flavors, and a minerally streak suggesing flint. The acids are bright and firm. This dry wine finishes with a ton of spices.
