The wine guys here at Whisky Drop, in celebration of Canada's big day, have put together a couple of great Rieslings from the Okanagan Valley. We've chosen a winery that is one of pioneers in the BC wine industry...
GEHRINGER BROTHERS WINERY
In 1973 brothers Helmut & Karl, surveyed the Okanagan Valley for the best location for growing grape, while Helmut's two sons went off the West Germany to hone their craft in winemaking...
In 1981 the land was purchased, 1985 a winery was built and the first vintage bottled.
The past 36 years of passionate winemaking on the Golden Mile Bench is reflected in the unparalleled level of consistency.
The Gehringer style is a symbiosis of terrior, ripe aromatic fruit and firm acidity.
The wines included in the package are the both awarding winning...
2018 Private Reserve Dry Riesling is a result of a specially selected site and exceptional vineyard care. The reduced crop load, and intensive leaf canopy management has yielded a positive difference in taste. This Riesling has a structured acidity and a rich fullness, that contributes to its weight and body. Hints of peach, honey, apple and kiwi are evident.
2017 Riesling Icewine - Grapes for this wine were picked at -10 degrees Celsius; cold enough to freeze the berries solid. During pressing all the sugars, acids, and flavour components slowly drip out while leaving the water as ice in the press. A natural concentration results, with no altering of the delicate fruit flavours. Fragrant aromas of peach, pink grapefruit and honeyed green apple, with flavours of the same. A great sweetness acidity balance.
As an added bonus we are including 2 Riedel Riesling / Icewine Glasses...
