2015 King Estate Antiquum Pinot Gris KE

$26.00 per Bottle

Tasting Notes

The bright pale straw hue of this wine hints at its playful nature. On the nose, this is reinforced with elements of peach, Fuji apple, orange blossom, and smooth almond. This full-bodied wine demonstrates sharp flavors of orange zest, peach, and apple pie, with a viscous cream presence that leads to a soft entry and long, fresh finish. Enjoy now until 2030.

Vineyard Notes

2015 was the earliest harvest in King Estate history. A dry, mild winter led to early bud break in mid to late March, about two weeks ahead of normal. With minimal frost damage to worry about during winter, there was an abundance of fruit set by early June. Warm temperatures throughout spring and summer kept the vines ahead of their seasonal average maturation while a slight reprieve from the heat arrived around harvest and helped to preserve acidity and allowed for optimal flavor development. Fruit came in perfectly ripe having benefited from extended hang time.
