Compared to the prototypical Oregon Pinot Gris, this one may be a little more brisk and one dimensional. We expect them to be sharp and well defined, and this is no exception to that, but may be a little lacking in the fruit department. This one probably is a touch less complex and more acidic. It makes your mouth pucker pretty bad, as the acid raises straight to the top of the mouth, leading me to believe it lacks some of the structure necessary to hold it together deeper into the palate. I don't think there is any malolactic fermentation. Completely stainless. More high handed acid on the finish.
First Pinot Gris. Nothing to compare against. Not much nose. Hint of lemon.Low acid on the palette, lemon, some spice.Did not feel dry. Good balance. Decent finish.Again first Pinot Gris so I can't compare to others. I guess for the price not bad.
Not usually a pinot gris fan, I ordered "Acrobat" (by the glass) as the chef recommendation, with a shrug. Really liked the wine. Came home and found it was King Estate, with a nod: I had been impressed previously with King Estate PG Signature. I did not take notes except to note my contentment, how well Acrobat went with my halibut, and to buy for my cellar.
Same notes as before, ladies drank at yesterday's cookout, they must have liked it as they went through 3 bottles. A very nice citrusy wine with balanced acid, good summer quaffer, not real demanding does show up for the game and contribute a strong effort.
Apricot and Pear on the nose, palate is sweet, not to sweet but really pretty much perfect. I get green apple and pear as it moves through the palate. Finish is acidic and slightly sweet. Very good wine! Highly Impressed by this one, drinks better than most of the Italian pinot grigio's I've tried.
Big Reds and Crisp Whites (Farpointe Cellar): The nose was mainly fruit - pear, apple, pineapple, and citrus. It also had a small amount of stone. The palate was also very fruity, just like the nose. The only difference was the finish had some tangerine.
Discovering Wine: Pale yellow wine with a light body. The nose is floral with mineral and pear. The taste is citrus with medium acidity. The finish is tart citrus, white grapefruit with OK length decent length for a pinot gris.
