King Estate Winery 2019 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley $19

By on January 3, 2022

No surprise here, but King Estate stands atop the Pinot Gris category for this year’s judging, earning its fourth Platinum in three years with this white grape from Burgundy. It’s charmingly fresh and bright with lemongrass, Meyer lemon and apricot on the entry, which leads to Ruby Red grapefruit and seafood-friendly finishing notes of minerality, peach pit and lemon pith for a delightfully refreshing wine. Awards: Sunset International (best of class), Rodeo Uncorked (gold), Cascadia International (gold), Savor NW (gold).

Rating: Double Platinum, 97 points

Production: 57,000 cases

Alcohol: 13.36%
