Acrobat 2015 Pinot Gris, Oregon, $13

By on January 10, 2017

Best Buy! King Estate winemakers Spencer Spetnagel and Brent Stone collaborate on this sister brand, which sources from their iconic Territorial Road property for 19% of the fruit and goes beyond for the majority of a harvest that came earlier than ever. Remarkable aromas of peach, Key lime and grapefruit pick up secondary notes of perfumy flannel sheets. Three months on the lees and 0.5% residual sugar steer the structure down the path of Bosc pear and jasmine with more orchard fruit and delicious lemony acidity. The subtext of pear skin bitters extends the balance and food-friendly approach.
