This bright white wine drinks quite easily making it an excellent aperitif and a great choice for the dinner table. I was impressed by its delicious array of fresh fruit, with aromas and flavors of pink grapefruit, nectarine, ripe apples and pears nicely balanced with orange and lemon citrus notes. This Oregon winery consistently produces very good wines at value prices. The winery recommends it with fettuccine and shrimp, smoked trout salad, salmon with beurre blanc, or calamari with ginger and herb butter. Available at BevMo! for $15.99, or online at www.kingestate.com.
