"GOOD VALUE, Here is a juicy, irresistibly quaffable Riesling that keys on direct and uncomplicated fruit, and, although it is far from complex, it is lithe, spotlessly clean and comfortably balanced with acidity enough to keep its moderate sweetness from becoming at all cloying. It would be hard to ask more from a wine of its modest price, and it continues its maker's track record of making honest, easy-to-like Rieslings that hit the mark for unequivocal value.

Winery Notes:
The "J" in the name stands for "Just Right" Riesling! Because of the popularity and demand of our Dry Riesling and Sweet Riesling, we thought it made perfect sense to craft a Riesling in a taste profile that was directly between our other popular Rieslings.

As wine lovers crave alternatives to heavy and oaky white wines, Riesling is experiencing a true revival. Portraying bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apple, the wine exemplifies the harmony of Riesling. The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).
