TASTING NOTES: Wine Enthusiast 91 points- Sophisticated and complex, this brings well structured layers of citrus juice, flesh and rind. It offers a delicate herbal touch and a lingering finish. As the wine evolves in the glass, a tasty hint of honeysuckle emerges..December/2017
Wine & Spirits 93 points- Maybe it's the vintage, or the wine's youth, but this estate gris from King is dramatically precocious, exhibiting not just an exuberance of fruit, but complex lees character as well, in its spice, minerality and savor. The wine's apple scents meld with brioche and meaty cured bacon notes. It's brisk on attack but turns mineral almost immediately, with a kind of talc like grip to the texture that's sure to cause hunger pangs; for halibut crudo. (1,700 cases).December/2017
