Ehrenfelser Wine Details
Price: $15.90 per bottle

Description: This is a gorgeous, aromatic wine full of complex tropical and dried fruit aromas with hints of honey. The palate is rich with great body and an extremely long finish. In most years, the Ehrenfelser is the first wine to sell out in the wine shop. All the grapes for this wine were grown on the beautiful Naramata Bench.

Varietal Definition
Grape resulting from the crossing of Riesling and a Sylvaner clone. Many consider it second only to the Kerner grape-cross as a frost-resistant Riesling type substitute for the better known Muller-Thurgau grape widely grown in Germany and elsewhere. Mild acid content discourages aging. Claimed to have excellent Riesling grape similarities in taste etc. Small acreages can now be found in the Okanagan region of western Canada, where it appears to do well.
