Jackson Estate Jensen Vineyard RIESLING 2017

Jensen Vineyard lies on the east side of the Salinas Valley, with soils originating from the Granitic Gavalon Range, home of Pinnacles State Park. Salinas Valley is known for the cool fog that rolls down the valley as it opens to the Pacific Ocean near Monterey. Fog and the famous afternoon breeze are perfect for developing this cool climate varietal.  Riesling is one of the last grapes to harvest, allowing for intense fruit development and a chance for a little botrytis to add complexity.  Fresh pear and floral aromas, with minerality and a hint of blossoms and perfume, ending with a nice crispness and bright finish.
