King Estate is Oregon's leading winery. Home to the largest contiguous certified Organic vineyard in the world, King Estate is known world wide for producing Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris (aka Pinot Grigio)
This pinot gris is strong on the grapefruit flavor, but without being too tart. In a word: nice.
King Estate Winery was the second stop on my weekend winery excursion. Driving up the winding road through the vineyard, the building slowly comes into view. It seemed almost magical to catch a glimpse of the "castle" on the hill. What a beautiful winery. This place is a must see! The first wine in the complementary flight was this 2006 Signature Collection Pinot Gris. It had a well-developed, citrus taste with hints of grapefruit and honey. I would say the wine had a medium weight wine- it wasn't a crisp pinot gris. The wine is not very sweet, but at the same time it's not tart. This pinot gris has a nice finish, as the taste of citrus lingers for a while. Overall, well done. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a bottle while watching TV after dinner this week.
