King Estate Winery Pinot Gris Oregon 2011
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)
Juicy but crisp.
My first foray into the Pinot Grigio. Lighter on the nose than the reds. I can spell the crispness and the lighter fruits. Can't pick out anything specific. A very nice palate...a lot of flavors playing in there...the acidity hits after some time trying to pick out the flavors...and it's quite enjoyable. There's no kick on the back end, however the flavors and acidity linger...never too much though. If this is how the Pinot Grigio's are...I'm a fan.

Light straw color with an emerald green hue. Aromas of green apples, citrus, honeysuckle, white peach, and floral notes. Pear, melon, lemon and lime, wet stone, kiwi, and honey on the palate. The mouthfeel has soft rich entry, nice texture, good weight, and a long lively crisp finish.
