NOTES: Everybody knows how well Oregonians grow the glamor grape Pinot Noir, and the quality of their whites is often overlooked. Those playing attention know that Pinot Gris thrives in this cool climate. King's Ridge is a gem of a wine that speaks to the place it was grown, rich in melon, peach, and poached pear while also lively with grapefruit, lime, and a springy acidity that make it easy to quaff. It will also go well with mango-ginger chicken, coconut curry, or tilapia tacos.
VARIETY: Pinot Gris
