The King Estate Pinot Gris is made with Organic Grapes so why not open it for Earth Day?
One of my goals on our trip to Oregon was to experience a range of Oregon Pinot Gris because we didn’t have much of a selection here at the time (it could still use some help) but I was also intrigued by Oregon’s commitment to the varietal that demands—legally—it must be called Pinot Gris, never Pinot Grigio.
The 2004 Domaine Pinot Gris was outstanding when I first tried it. I’m afraid it has lost some its balance over time. In the nose I was greeted with a sweet honeysuckle, citrus, floral and fresh straw. The same sweet honey prevailed in the mouth; medium finish with a subdued acidity.
