Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery 2017 Classic Riesling, Okanagan Valley, $13

By on June 23, 2018

Best Buy! Walter and Gordon Gehringer’s latest Classic Riesling lives up to its billing, with brilliant varietal aromas of grapefruit, lime, honey and peach from its Okanagan Valley fruit. In the mouth, it adds apple and kiwi, plus refreshing acidity and a trace of sweetness. It’s officially off-dry, but the acidity makes it an excellent food wine Asian fare, especially if it contains lemongrass, lime and yellow or green curry. This won a gold medal and best of class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 2,500 cases
