J LOHR BAY MIST WHITE RIESLING MONTEREY COUNTY 2015
J LOHR BAY MIST RIESLING 2011
The 2011 vintage was one of the coldest since the El Niño and La Niña years of 1998 and 1999. Although the cumulative 2200 Growing Degree Days are slightly higher than those of 2010, the vintage proved dramatically cooler given the very cold, late winter and delayed budbreak. In fact, parts of the Arroyo Seco had their first vine-damaging spring frost, ever! In 2011, cool, moist air ensured the ever-present threat of mildew, but with the diligence of our vineyard team, led by Agapito Vasquez, we made it through the growing season unscathed. White Riesling is the last variety to ripen and was not optimally ripe until the 2nd and 3rd of November! Our patience was rewarded in 2011, as this is perhaps our finest Riesling ever produced at J. Lohr.
