Winemaker's Notes:

Light straw with emerald green hue. Aromas of green apple, citrus, honeysuckle, white peach, apricot and floral notes. Flavors of pear, melon, lemon and lime, wet stone, kiwi and honey. The palate has a soft, rich entry, nice texture, good weight and a long, lively crisp finish.

The benchmark for American Pinot Gris was set by King Estate with this wine, it has truly become America s signature style.

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.

There's a crisp edge to the apple and honeydew aromas and flavors, which echo nicely on the finish. Drink now.

Tangy and bright, with grapefruit and lime accents to the pear and almond flavors. Lingers nicely.

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.

King Estate is certainly the largest producer of Pinot Gris in Oregon, and probably in the country. Unlike the PGs that dominate the market, this is a fleshy wine, with lush flavors of pear and subtle cinnamon scents. All stainless steel fermented, aged sur lie for a bit of creamy texture, it's just slightly over 13% alcohol, making it a terrific oyster wine and flat-out food friendly for all your shellfish and lighter pastas.
