Be notified of future releases

The 2019 J. Lohr Gesture RVG presents youthful pale yellow and green hues. The delicate nose offers aromas of honeysuckle, Meyer lemon, ripe apple, and honeydew melon. These flavors expand on the palate with ripe white peach, tangerine, and a touch of minerality, with balanced texture and a long finish.

Vintage

The spring of 2019 in western Paso Robles was cool compared with recent vintages. Minimal irrigation was applied during most of the growing season until the heat of early September. Roussanne and Grenache Blanc were harvested in multiple passes to ensure uniformity of ripeness. Harvest began on September 19th with the Grenache Blanc and continued for another 19 days with the other varietals until the last of the Viognier and Roussanne were picked. The resulting RVG is a blend of three specific wines chosen from several subtle picks.

Vineyard

The grapes for the Gesture RVG are sourced from our Gean Vineyard in the Adelaida District of western Paso Robles. The Gean Vineyard, planted in 2010, is the western- most vineyard in the Paso Robles AVA. With a climate nearly identical to that of the Northern Rhône, combined with well-drained soils of calcareous shale and weathered sandstone, this vineyards’ terroir is a perfect match for growing Roussanne, Viognier, and Grenache Blanc. The warm days with southern and western exposures on this hillside vineyard help to naturally develop ripe, lush flavors, while the cool nights allow for hangtime, giving the wine power and depth.
