Food Pairings for Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery Riesling Okanagan Valley Vqa Private Reserve
External Reviews for Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery Riesling Okanagan Valley Vqa Private Reserve
From this winery’s first vintage in 1985, it has made good Riesling wines consistently. Credit that to the German education of the Canadian-born brothers who run the winery. Walter Gehringer was the first Canadian graduate of the Geisenheim Institute. His younger brother, Gordon, studied at Weinsberg, a deliberate choice made so that he and his brother would have complementary but not identical perspectives on viticulture.Gehringer explores all the available styles of Riesling, from dry to icewine (the winery is one of the Okanagan’s leading icewine producers). This Private Reserve is made in the Germanic, off-dry style with which the winery remains identified, long after its extensive portfolio has grown to include many fine dry table wines. However, off-dry does not mean perceptibly sweet. Gehringer retains enough lively acidity in this wine to give it a zesty, crisp finish. Light and refreshing, the wine has delicate floral aromas and attractive lemon and lime flavours. 87 points.
