King Estate Pinot Gris Oregon 2007
On the nose is lemon and floral notes. The palate burst with lemon and melon and pear with a hint of grass on the finish. Bold and acidic and slightly dry. Complimented my blackened grouper and soft shell crab perfectly.
External Reviews for King Estate Pinot Gris Oregon
WS 89 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Tangy and bright, with grapefruit and lime accents to the pear and almond flavors. Lingers nicely. According to Wine & Spirits Magazine - 2010 Winery of the Year and a 2010 Value Brand of the Year. 92 points Wine & Spirits: "Bright and exuberant as soon as it hits the glass, this wine has vibrant and persistent tangerine and white peach scents. On the palate it has a fresh mineral bite, the flavors more in the vein of citrus, the acidity lively and on point." This is the benchmark for domestic Pinot Gris, with aromas of grapefruit, green apple, honeysuckle, white peach, apricot, lime and floral notes with flavors of melon, mineral, lively citrus, stone fruit and honey. Soft, rich with nice texture and good weight, this is balanced by a long lively crisp finish.
