King Estate first made their Domaine Pinot Gris in 2003, exclusively from estate-grown fruit. Constant experimentation with new clones and multiple trellis systems has brought marked, steady improvement. This is a fine effort; the fruit smacks of cut pear, pineapple and light tropical flavors. It's textural and tangy, with a pleasing citrus skin finish.
