External Reviews for King Estate Pinot Gris Signature Collection Oregon
This fresh and zingy version is tart, offering pear, almond and lime blossom flavors. Drink now.
Generous at the outset, this wine has the scent of pear slices spritzed with lemon juice. Those fresh fruit flavors get a warm toasted lees accent on the palate, along with a mineral finish. A versatile gris for a meal, whether grilled chicken or stuffed squid.
The benchmark for American Pinot Gris was set by King Estate with this wine, it has truly become America s signature style.
If America has a signature Pinot Gris, this is it - widely available, crisply varietal, and now named "Signature Collection." Fleshy pear and stone fruits form the central core; with some suggestions of tannin and light herb finishing up, along with a bit of vanilla wafer.
Bright and lively, brimming with lemon meringue, golden raisin and green tea character. Finishes with zip. Drink now.
Tangy and bright, with grapefruit and lime accents to the pear and almond flavors. Lingers nicely.
Round and generous, with layers of spicy apple, pear and melon flavors on a polished frame. A bit more stylish than most.
