GEHRINGER – AUXERROIS OLD VINES GOLDEN MILE BENCH 2018
Tree fruits drive the taste of this one.
As a wine, Auxerrois is more full bodied and less crisp than Pinot Blanc, but the two varieties complement each other’s weaknesses.
Named after a historical province in France, it is widely grown in Luxembourg and Germany as well.
The Gehringer Brothers planted their Auxerrois over 30 years ago and these vines are producing lovely wine today. And, winning awards.
Over the past 19 years, they have received 78 Platinum Awards – the most of any Winery in the Pacific Northwest.
Slightly fuller in flavour than Pinot Blanc. It’s also slightly less acidic.
The Brothers G varietal is smooth and well balanced and tremendous value for the money.
We’ve paired it with salmon, quiche, and had it just as it is on the deck with cheese. It’s great with Scallops or prawns.
