KING ESTATE 2004 Domaine Oregon Pinot Gris

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.

100% stainless steel and aged sur lie for eight months. 13.5% alcohol.
