Acrobat Pinot Gris 2011
"Acrobat is wine born to introduce even more people to the style and grace of Pinot Gris. Grown responsibly in the gorgeous hills and valleys of Oregon, this wine works wonderfully with food of all kinds and is equally crisp and refreshing on its own. On the color, this is pale straw with golden highlights. Showing aromas and flavors of grapefruit, honey suckle, lime zest, fresh pear, golden delicious apple, floral, spice. The finish is viscous, crisp, with a hint of sweetness and good length." -Winery
Editorial Reviews for Acrobat Pinot Gris
Very fruity and perfumed on the nose with a distinct floral character. Subtly sweet on entry, balanced by assertive acidity and a nice touch of trapped CO2, which adds a touch of nervous energy on the palate. The fruit here is quite fresh with a hint of greengage plum adding roundness to the core of citrus and slightly grapey flavors. The finish is lean and tart, attractive in a lemonade kind of way, but it ends somewhat abruptly. 86pts
Crisp, clean...light in color, very drinkable...and oh yeah, affordable too!

Fine white wine- King Estate Acrobat Pinot Gris 2011 - USA - Region: Oregon - Apellation: Lorane - Pinot Gris - 750 ml
This classic gris leads with juicy green apple and orange zest flavors, accelerated by a full-bore complement of acidity. It’s frisky and would pair nicely with hamachi crudo.

This runs to the tart, lemony style of Pinot Gris, common in cool vintages. Citrus and gooseberry flavors are balanced against refreshing minerality, and the acidity is neither harsh nor simply sour.
