Acrobat 2016 Pinot Gris, Oregon, $14

By on April 7, 2018

King Estate created made news this spring with the sale of its sister label to California-based conglomerate Foley Family Wines. Brent Stone this penultimate vintage of Acrobat using fruit from beyond the Willamette Valley, and he created quite a crowd-pleaser. Starting with complex aromas of lemon-lime and jasmine, there’s some peach fuzz and minerality in the mix, too. On the rounded palate, peach and apricot get loaded up front before that lemon-lime blend returns to cap this really easy drinker.
