The San Francisco Chronicle’s Top 100 Wines of 2010 has just been published, and for the second consecutive year, Jon Bonné and the Chronicle, have selected our Signature Pinot Gris as one of their Top 100 Wines of the Year. This is a significant accolade from a newspaper with a serious wine department that without a doubt tastes more wine than any newspaper in the country.
2009 King Estate Winery Signature Oregon Pinot Gris
This is King Estate’s forte, and winemaker Jeff Kandarian focused on texture, aging in steel tanks but leaving the wine on lees for five months. Slightly spicy – think nutmeg – with a clear, lemony brightness.

Along with the list of the Top 100 Wines of the Year the San Francisco Chronicle also published a list of Top Vintners Not At Top Dollar, a round up of the Chronicle’s top recommendations for inexpensive wines produced by the some of the Top 100 Wineries. This section includes a recommendation for our Acrobat Pinot Noir.
