Never had this wine before (any vintage) but heard it was good value for the price and so gave it a go. What a lovely wine. Bags of fruit.. white peaches balancing fresh acidity. It developed to granny smith apples with hint of grapefruit followed by a little lime on the full finish. Probably should have been matched with food but on a warm Florida evening it hit all the right notes being quaffed down. On the evidence here I will buy again ( perhaps a different vintage to see what else is on offer).
This is a really nice summer wine, full of citrus and acidity. Lemon and green apple on the middle, nice mouth feel with just a touch of spice. Somewhere between a Napa Sauvignon Blanc and an unoaked chardonnay.
My wife and I were surprisingly pleased with this 2010 King Estate Pinot Gris, as we do not generally favor wines from this grape. The only reason I bought it was because it was for sale in the clearance bin for only $9. After tasting it, I ran back to find more, but there were none. The wine was quite delicious, perhaps a bit less dry than others we like, but very flavorful. It was great with or without food. The label says it has "incredible food pairing versatility," and I don't think I would disagree. Highly recommended.
(13%) Bright tangerine and lime fruit with nice mineral and acidity (with a bit of pepper spice) on the back of the palate. Nice mouth feel; crisp and refreshing with a lively finish with tart green apple and lingering citrus fruit. None of the flabbiness I typically get on your average Oregon Pinot Gris and much more restrained (or is it just “less rich”) as well. At $13 this is money well spent. A nice wine at a reasonable price; replacing the Elk Cove Pinot Gris as the best I’ve had (and my new benchmark) to date from Oregon. I’ll buy again.
