2012 King Estate Pinot Gris Signature Collection Oregon
It's been way to long since I've had King Estate wine in my cellar and after tonight's sipping it will always be in there. Pinot Gris has become one of my go to white wines along with Oregon varietals. A nice purchase from my local wine store for $16.99.
On the nose honeydew melon, cantaloupe, with fresh grated lime zest. Wild flowers and grapefruit notes with a kiss of honey. Nice little pleaser.
In the mouth lime and grapefruit dominate with a hint of tart apple. Peach and apricot with allspice in the middle finishing with the juicy grapefruit. Nice spring time sipper paired well with my fresh shrimp dish.
