King Estate Pinot Gris 2008
Lots of sweet fruit on the nose with lightly spicy floral tones and nice creamy apple notes. A touch sweet on entry, then quite bright with acids that really refresh the palate. Very green apple-flavored with an intriguing tropical element that recalls papaya. This is intense and fairly complex, only falling short on the slightly modest finish. Great fruit and freshness. 88ptsAdd winemaker's notes

Bright tropical fruity nose, with ginger, basil, and mint. The mouth is peachy, with fresh acidity and a minerality that carries into a smooth finish.
Medium bodied wine with notes of limes and key lime. Spritz of CO2 and acidity on entry, with a slightly sugary finish. Good minerality, its well balanced. Clean and fruity.
This is a great pinot gris that is light and refreshing with a clean finish. I have blind wine tasting parties at my house and I have purchased this wine as my entry and it has won a couple of times!! Easy for summer drinking and pairing with summertime dinners!

#77 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 200990 Points - Wine Spectator"Bright and lively, brimming with lemon meringue, golden raisin and green tea character. Finishes with zip. Drink now."90 Points - Wine & Spirits"King Estate's 2008 Signature is slightly richer than past vintages, with a peachlike scent that gives way to weighty pear and white peach flavors. It has a satisfying fullness and the palate weight for pork loin."
