Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery 2017 Classic Riesling, Okangan Valley, $13.29

By on October 19, 2018

Best Buy! Walter Gehringer and his brother Gordon have earned Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery the crown as “King of the Platinum” for their myriad awards during the past two decades. Their 2017 Classic Riesling is exactly that, classic. Varietally correct aromas and flavors include lime, orange, peach, honey and apple as well as spot-on acidity to easily balance the residual sugar of 1.3%. Suggested pairings include medium to hot curries, chutneys and Asian foods, pork, chicken, turkey, pasta and salads. In the first half of 2018, it earned double gold at the Cascadia Wine Competition, gold at the Indy International Wine Competition, gold at NorthWest Wine Summit and gold at the Los Angeles International Wine Competition. In October, it was awarded the title of Best Riesling at the Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition.
