The 2015 vintage is a brilliant example of Pinot Gris from a consistent and warmer than average Willamette Valley growing season. This wine has a brilliant straw yellow color. Aromas of honeysuckle, Bartlett pear and pineapple are framed by delicate notes of mineral, rose petal and lemon zest. A supple wine from the start, the palate exudes flavors of fresh cut pear, pineapple and key lime. There is a striking balance of ripe fruit and fresh acidity that provides a lengthy clean finish. This wine will age beautifully through the next decade.
Our flagship wine, King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Gris, reflects an excellence recognized worldwide. Made with the best selection of grapes each year, the 2015 vintage was sourced primarily from King Estate’s certified organic and Biodynamic vineyard as well as a handful of like-minded sustainably-farmed vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley.
Flavors of honeydew, pear, wild honey and lime zest are framed by mineral notes. The finish is clean, long and generous. This wine will age beautifully through the next decade.
