King Estates 2007 Signature Pinot Gris

Brunch at the Flying Melon on Ocracoke. We need something light to balance the curried chicken salad and a grilled chicken sandwich. This wonderful Oregon Pinot Gris did a great job.
Soft almost round, with some apple and melon. Just a hint of green grass. Delightful.

King Estate 2006 Signature Pinot Gris
This sunny young wine leads with aromas of ripe apple spiced with mace, accented with a touch of green herb. On the palate it's as fresh as white wine gets, with a succulent mid palate that's leavened, elegantly, with a fine, talc-like minerality.
