King Estate Signature Collection Pinot Gris 2008

It's a sunny, warm summer day so wanting something crisp and refreshing I reached for a bottle of King Estate's Pinot Gris. This Oregon winery always delivers so it was good to find out this wine was just one more in a long line of good valued wines. Pinot Gris is usually mildly floral with hints of citrus and that is definitely what you get here with a little something extra. In the glass the wine was clear with a light yellow-green tint. The nose was delicate but lovely yielding pear, hints of peach, lime zest and just a hint of floral notes. On the palate this is a dry wine, medium to medium (+) acidity with flavors of citrus, touch of apricots and peaches and a hint of minerality on the lovely long finish. Crisp, light, delicate... just what I needed.
