Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery 2020 Optimum Pinot Gris, Okanagan Valley, $16.99

By on June 3, 2021

Some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest white wines appear annually when Gordon and Walter Gehringer release their stable of reliable Riesling, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Auxerrois. This year’s Cascadia — a three-day tasting — was only a few hours old when the brothers Pinot Gris program had already won two gold medals. The 2020 Optimum appropriately sports that name with aromas of peach, pear and a hint of lime, which usher in flavors of white peach, winter peach and beautifully crisp lime acidity to balance the residual sugar (0.8%) and make for a lingering finish. Serve it with fish, chicken of by itself on a warm summer evening.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 200 cases

Alcohol: 13.2%
