This time I went with a California Riesling.
Winemaker: J Lohr
Wine: Bay Mist White Riesling
Appellation: Monterey County, California
Notes: Interestingly, this wine is a blend of 92% White Riesling, 6% Gewurztraminer and 2% Orange Muscat. It was a pale yellow in the glass, and I got scents of apple and citrus in the bouquet. On the palate the wine has a very light effervescence. Flavors for me were primarily apple and lime with peach notes. There was grass on the finish and some light hints of spice as well. Alcohol is at 13.1% – dry by comparison with most Rieslings. Acidity seemed fine but not as bright as with others I’ve had. Overall, it’s a pleasant wine.
