Gehringer Brothers' Classic Ehrenfelser
"One of the finest white wine producers anywhere on the west coast." Northwest Press
Gehringer Brothers' dream of an estate winery was conceived in the year 1973. After high school, Walter Gehringer went to West Germany. There he acquired their fine wine-making skills. After five years he graduated from the world renowned University of Geisenheim with an engineering degree in viticulture and oceanology. His brother Gordon also spent four years in West Germany acquiring the wine master's art, graduating with a degree from Weinsberg. The present buildings were built in 1985 the same year as their first vintage.
The recently released Classic Ehrenfelser is one sensational wine. It brusts with fruit flavours highlighted by notes of Apricots, honey and almond. Ihas a nice touch of sweetness and a strong finish
