Bill Daley, wine columnist for the Chicago Tribune, published some great reviews of King Estate Signature Pinot Gris and Acrobat Pinot Gris by King Estate. Two of his 3 “Winning Whites” with 3 corkscrew reviews!
“Winning whites from Oregon
Oregon pinot gris bested its California competition in a blind tasting of seven newly released wines. Indeed, the wine panel gave these whites from the Beaver State the top three positions.
2008 King Estate Pinot Gris Signature Collection : From Oregon, a lively white with a very aromatic nose and softly ripe flavors of pear and honey spiked with a green apple zip. Serve with fried chicken, scampi, seafood quiche. Three corkscrews, $17
2008 Acrobat Pinot Gris: A lower-priced pinot gris from Oregon’s King Estate, this white has a voluptuous profile, with a creamy texture, a buttery peach flavor and a tangy finish. Serve with broiled trout, barbecued chicken, grilled halibut. Three corkscrews, $12″
