The Unwinder Ehrenfelser

The Unwinder Ehrenfelser

Every four or five years, Ehrenfelser likes to take a rest. We’re not sure why, maybe it just likes to relax and unwind a bit? But about twice a decade, it produces a short crop. The long warm fall helped its flavours develop nicely, and our signature early evening shade kept the acidity brisk and refreshing. There’s just less Ehrenfelser to go around. The 2017 Ehrenfelser is made from a blend of estate grown fruit and grapes sourced from long-time friends of the family at Mannhardt Vineyard. Tropical. Crisp. And refreshing. Get it while you can get it.
