King Estate Pinot Gris 2021
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Classic hallmarks of Pinot Gris appear on the nose with aromas of ripe pear, lime zest, peach, honeysuckle and lemon blossom. The wine starts off nice and round on the palate with ripe fruit flavors of Asian pear, key lime and nectarine accompanied by jasmine and damp slate. The entrance is followed by bright acidity that carries through to a fresh, balanced and lingering finish.
A floral perfume lifts from the 2021 Pinot Gris, revealing notes of orange blossom, yellow apple, and honeydew melon. The palate is fresh and medium-bodied, with citrus, wet stone, and marzipan. The lightly phenolic, bitter almond finish makes this a food-friendly wine to have at the table for near-term drinking.
