Wine EnthusiastKing Estate consistently delivers, and this is a delicious, creamy, textural wine. Full-throttle fruit combines lemon, lime, pineapple and candied citrus rind, underscored by refreshing minerality. Give it a slight chill and drink now through 2020.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Pinot Gris has uncomplicated apple and baking bread notes with a waft of fennel seed. Medium-bodied, dry, youthful and refreshing on the palate, it gives nice purity and finishes clean.
