Early in our 30-year history, King Estate established a reputation for
Willamette Valley Pinot Gris that continues to this day. The Willamette
Valley – and our cool climate, high elevation site in particular – is ideally
suited for growing Pinot Gris grapes. Made with the finest fruit from our own
estate and our like-minded vineyard partners, this wine reflects a
commitment to sustainable farming practices in each bottle.
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.
The wine is fermented in 100% stainless steel temperature controlled tanks
to preserve varietal character and aromatic complexity. Aged sur lie in
stainless steel for four months.
