King Estate Acrobat Pinot Gris 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

This smells a little leesy and creamy at first with sweet pear fruits that feature hints of tangerine, melon and white flowers. On entry this is soft with kiwi fruit right up front followed by gently creamy tangerine and a slight honeycomb note on the mid-palate. It's a medium bodied white with a lovely soft texture that makes it easy to drink, yet there's a fine acid spine that makes this equally easy to pair with food. The finish is more orchard fruit toned with notes of pear and apricot as well as a nice steely tone on the zesty finale. This would pair perfectly with Chicken of Pork dishes that feature a bit of fruit, particularly orchard fruits like apricot. 89pts

Another King Estate success story with pinot gris. This bottle was easily the best entry level pinot gris I've ever had. Fresh in a word. Melon, tropical fruits, apple (Granny Smith) and juicy acidity make this a perfect sitting on the deck on a warm spring or summer day quaffer. Drink now - Paul 88 points

Scents of passion fruit and lemon give way to focused citrus fruit flavors. The mineral texture leans into the citrus notes and then edges away, for a pleasingly elusive finish.

Ripe fruit takes center stage in this tasty Pinot Gris loaded with fresh apple, pear and peach flavor. It’s full bodied, round in the mouth, ready to drink and flavorful through the mouthfilling finish.

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.
