King Estate Backbone Pinot Gris 2015


SKU 44431


The 2015 Backbone Pinot Gris has a glistening straw yellow color. Aromas of nectarine, violets and lemon are accented by a pleasant mineral note of wetted stone. At first sip, this wine is silky and supple until the mid-palate explodes into complex flavors honeydew melon, key lime and just-ripe pear. The finish highlights gorgeous acidity that is the overarching theme of this beautiful Willamette Valley Pinot Gris.

Wine EnthusiastThis is the reserve-level Pinot Gris, comprised of lots from five different vineyards. Juicy, succulent and quite tart fruit flavors emphasize fresh apples and pears, lightly dusted with cinnamon spice. The concentration and lingering finish prove it worthy of its reserve status.
