13. Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery 2014 Old Vines Auxerrois, Okanagan Valley, $13
The Gehringer Brothers of the Okanagan Valley have a knack for producing amazing Auxerrois. Their 2014 follows their recipe for success: Aromas of starfruit and light citrus hint at a minerality that shows up in the finish to complement its bright, lip-smacking lime flavors. This rare and delicious wine won best of show at the third annual Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition at the historic Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River, Ore.
