32. Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery 2014 Classic Riesling, Okanagan Valley, $15
This longtime producer just north of the U.S.-Canadian border has been crafting stunning wines – particularly whites – for years. In fact, Gehringer Brothers holds the title of “King of the Platinum” for its 47 Platinum medals in 15 years from Wine Press Northwest magazine. It’s well on its way to more with this beautiful dry Riesling, thanks to aromas of honeydew, Golden Delicious apple and fresh herbs. On the palate, it reveals flavors of Granny Smith apple, bright pear and mango. It is a gorgeous and balanced wine.
